Boughton Law helps plan for the distribution and management of estates during life and after death. The lawyers in our practice work to give you peace of mind and create a concrete plan that takes care of those closest to you.
The thought of planning for the end of life may seem intimidating at first, but estate planning and detailed wills can help cultivate peace of mind for you and your beneficiaries. Having an organized, carefully thought out plan for the administration and the distribution of your estate is an important first step to taking care of your loved ones later in life.
Boughton Law’s Wills, Trusts, and Estates Practice Group is experienced with estate planning and transfer of wealth. We advise on legal structures such as trusts, wills, joint ownership, life insurance arrangements, inter-vivos gifts, and alter-ego trusts. In particular, business owners benefit from our effective planning strategies that consider asset ownership, protection, and distribution. In many cases, we are retained by trustees, executors, and administrators to obtain probate of wills or advise on the administration of trusts.
Ensuring that your estate is managed just as you want it, and that the people you care about are looked after is our goal. We are proud to be your trusted legal advisor and can help plan for additional support for yourself or a family member in the case of incapacity or disability. We work with other Practice Groups in our firm, such as the Tax Practice Group, to take advantage of potential tax saving strategies. We also have relationships with many charitable organizations should you wish to make a donation as part of your estate management.
If wills and estate plans are contested, our Estate Litigation Practice Group can help to resolve disputes and where necessary, represent you in court proceedings. Click here to learn more.
