Dick, Dick & Corey, LLP has represented area families for generations with regard to property and estate planning. We assist individuals and families to plan for the inevitable succession of assets and property from one generation to the next. We work with our clients and their families to ensure their plan for transfer and distribution of assets at death proceeds in accordance with their stated wishes. As part of that planning, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the various estate tools such as wills, the various different types of trusts or family limited partnerships, helping our clients determine which approach best suits their needs.
In some estates, tax planning is a component part as we plan to minimize estate and death taxes levied at the time of death. We work closely with our clients to plan for ultimate estate administration of estates and trusts of all sizes and complexities factoring those tax implications.
While it is important to plan for transfer and distribution of assets at death, planning is also essential for asset protection and healthcare decision-making in life.
We provide our personal attention to ultimately prepare custom-designed documents and plans to help our clients achieve personal, financial and family goals.
