Estate Planning

Estate Planning

Griffing Leazer's estate planning attorneys can help with any estate planning or estate administration need you might have. We assist accountants, financial planners, fiduciaries, executives, and trustees with beginning or administering estates or trusts. We prepare wills, trusts, power of attorneys, health care power of attorneys, living wills and other estate planning documents including sophisticated documents like charitable remainder trusts and generation skipping trusts.

We also assist with the probate and administrative process of an estate. We assist with the whole process of winding down the estate like transferring the estate to the beneficiaries, paying the estate debts, filing the final estate income tax returns, the estate and gift tax returns, and local clerk filings. We also help with elder law and medicaid planning, retirement distributions, and charitable planning as needed.
