Estate Planning Overview
We will begin by reviewing your assets and estate planning objectives.

A comprehensive estate plan allows you to:
- Leave assets to the people or organizations you choose
- Eliminate or minimize estate tax
- Provide for your loved ones after your death
- Determine who will manage your property and finances in the event of incapacity
