Connecticut Estate Planning Lawyers
Eagan, Donohue, Van Dyke & Falsey, LLP’s experienced Connecticut estate planning lawyers have been serving the Estate needs of individual clients for many years. We have the experience to help plan and prepare so those special individuals in our lives are appropriately taken care of.
As indispensable parts of estate planning, our Connecticut estate planning lawyers recommend a will, living will, and power of attorney. A will is the most essential document. A will permits you to, among many other things, make specific gifts, appoint guardians and create trusts for children, minimize taxes, and appoint an executor and trustee to manage all these matters. A living will provides medical direction for your care regarding life support. A power of attorney appoints someone else as your agent with authority to manage your affairs during your lifetime.
In addition to these essential documents, our Connecticut estate planning lawyers assist our clients by creating a complete estate plan to help preserve assets. A complete estate plan may include various forms of trusts, including irrevocable or revocable trusts, intervivos or testamentary trusts, a crummy trust, life insurance trusts, trusts for children, and other wealth management tools. In many matters, a trust may not be necessary, and effective estate planning may be conducted through lifetime gift planning.
Our Connecticut estate planning lawyers recognize that there are estate plans that require basic plans, and others requiring a more advanced approach. Please feel free to contact us by phone or email, or make an appointment to come in and visit.
