You've worked hard to accumulate assets and security, and, whether it's your personal wealth or business assets, it's important that you plan for the protection of those throughout your life, and for your beneficiaries upon your death. Our law firm wants to put you in the best position to make these important decisions so that plans are in place when they are necessary.
At the Law Offices of Merrill, Cruttenden & Collinson, P.A., we can help you achieve your goals by bringing together a team of people to help you make plans today to protect your personal and business assets. Our practice areas include estate planning and business law issues and we are dedicated to providing clients efficient and effective solutions.
Estate Planning — Wills, Trusts and Your Family's Future
Our experienced attorneys understand that your family situation, assets and values are all unique. We know that crafting an estate plan is not a one-size-fits-all solution and that it takes time to develop a plan that will meet your needs. While most people will want to address how their assets and property will be distributed after their death, we can also provide guidance on planning for incapacity.
We use a variety of estate planning tools, such as wills and trusts, to assist you in planning. We encourage our clients to take a proactive approach to ensure that their loved ones and their business are taken care of long after they create their estate plan. Through the use of advanced health care directives, powers of attorney and other planning tools, you can also provide instructions in the event of your incapacity or death.
If you are a business owner, you will also want to provide for the future of your business through business succession planning. Our attorneys have both estate planning and business acumen to handle these matters and have been handling estate planning matters for over 25 years.
