Estate Planning

Carmody MacDonald's estate planning lawyers have helped thousands of clients in all aspects of estate planning. Our specialists keep up with the rapidly changing world of tax, probate and trust laws to help clients meet their estate and general asset protection planning goals.

We analyze the state and federal income, estate, gift and generation-skipping tax impact of your plan, and use trusts and other sophisticated estate planning tools to reduce taxes. We think creatively to develop business succession planning, marital agreements, wills, trusts, health care directives (living wills), charitable foundations and total business and estate plans consistent with our clients' personal and business goals. You can rest easy knowing your family and your assets are protected effectively.
