Many people work hard throughout their lives to build up their personal and family wealth, yet all too often neglect measures to preserve that wealth for their families. Because there are statutes which set out the time periods for the IRS and TennCare to claim back tax on transfers; forethought can prove invaluable. But estate planning is not simply about savings tax; our aim is to help you ensure a smooth transfer of wealth from one generation to the next and to simultaneously safeguard your financial security as you plan for retirement.
Research shows that only one in three adults have made a will. Apart from the risk of incurring taxes and probate expenses which could have been avoided, the absence of a will is likely to cause greater complications after death when your family is least able to deal with them. Furthermore, the inflexibility of the intestacy rules which will apply may well mean your estate passing to beneficiaries you would not have chosen yourself. Our approach will almost certainly involve preparing a will, no matter how large or small your estate, the careful preparation most relevant to your situation. We will keep this vital document under regular review to ensure that it keeps pace with any changes in your circumstances and provides continued peace of mind.
