Unlike many firms, we do not utilize a “cookie cutter” approach to estate planning.  We tailor your estate planning documents to your individual needs and goals, whether that be a straight-forward will or trust or a more sophisticated estate plan.  Our estate planning attorneys all have master’s degrees in taxation law and specialize in estate tax minimization planning, farm and ranch succession planning and business succession planning, including:

  • Complex wills or revocable trusts (“living trusts”)
  • Generation skipping trusts, life insurance trusts, charitable remainder trusts, qualified personal residence trusts, marital deduction trusts, qualified domestic trusts and other similar estate planning techniques
  • Formation of corporations, both Subchapter S and Subchapter C, limited liability companies and limited partnerships designed to transfer large farm and ranch operations or other types of businesses to successive generations with the least practical transfer tax
  • Other forms of business succession planning

We also provide complete probate administration, estate administration and trust administration services.  We have a certified public accountant on staff who assists in the preparation of federal estate tax returns, fiduciary returns and accounting.  Our estate planning attorneys also work with our trial lawyers on estate and trust litigation matters.
