Connecticut Estate Planning Lawyers

The estate planning lawyers at Eagan & Donohue are experienced Connecticut estate planning lawyers and have been serving the state planning needs of our clients for over 36 years. We have the experience to help plan and prepare clients in all their estate planning needs.

As indispensable parts of the estate planning process, our estate planning lawyers recommend that clients obtain a will, living will, health care appointment, power of attorney and appoint of conservator for future incapacity. A will is the most essential document. A will permits you to, among many other things, make specific gifts, appoint guardians, 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 t estate planning lawyers assist our clients by creating a complete estate plan to help preserve their 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 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 discuss your needs.
