Wealth preservation and protection require an acute grasp of your current and future needs, and the needs of those who depend on you. The decisions can seem overwhelming. You must select individuals whom you trust to act as your estate’s fiduciary, either as an executor, a trustee, or guardians for underage children or special-needs family members. You might also choose a health care agent to make medical decisions or an attorney-in-fact who will manage financial affairs when you are unable to do so for yourself. You must also be confident in your decisions about how your assets are managed and distributed when you are no longer in control. You need to be aware of crucial federal and state estate law considerations that can generously minimize taxes in the wealth transfer aspect of your estate plan. Schanker and Schanker offers the knowledge and expertise to counsel and guide you through the process, so you can be sure that the decisions you make are informed and appropriate for your goals.
