Probate & Estate Planning
Estate Planning, Probate, and Elder Law Handled with Care and Respect
At Weld Riley, we assist clients with estate planning, probate, and elder law issues. From simple estate planning to the most complex probate matters, we help make the experience as simple and painless as possible.
End-of-life issues are sensitive and personal. We take care in working with our clients and their accountants and financial advisers to identify and implement their estate planning goals. We then prepare the appropriate documents to address issues such as:
Basic estate planning: Weld Riley helps clients from all walks of life develop basic estate plans. Typically, an estate plan includes a will and a power of attorney. In light of your personal priorities, a revocable living trust and/or living will may also be appropriate.
Estate tax planning: Now that the federal estate tax has been restored, we can help high-asset couples consider their options for reducing or eliminating the tax burden on their estates so they can pass more of their assets to their children and beneficiaries.
Medicaid planning: It is important to plan early for the possibility of future nursing home care. Our elder law attorneys help clients plan gifting and other strategies for taking full advantage of Medicaid benefits.
Prenuptial agreements: Particularly for people who already have children and/or substantial assets, prenuptial agreements can play an important role in estate planning. We assist clients with drafting, reviewing, and negotiating prenuptial agreements.
