Comprehensive Estate Planning Services
Seattle estate planning attorney Ann T. Wilson can advise you on essential estate planning matters and help you prepare a plan that will cover all your needs and the needs of your loved ones. When prepared wisely and thoroughly, a comprehensive estate plan will allow you to:
- Make critical decisions about where your property will go: By clearly designating executors, beneficiaries, trustees, attorneys-in-fact and other essential players, you can decide where your property will go after you die and who will be in charge of your estate. Specifically, our firm can prepare or update your will in order to address every relevant area.
- Take care of family members and make gifts to causes you deem worthy: You can use wills and trusts to provide for the future needs of your loved ones and give to causes you care about. We are skilled in the use of irrevocable trusts, revocable trusts, gifting trusts and other tools that may serve your purposes.
- Avoid unnecessary tax liabilities: You can direct your money to your loved ones and to charities of your choice through the use of trusts, gifts and other powerful vehicles that will enable you to avoid unnecessary estate taxes. With an advanced legal degree in taxation and experience with generation-skipping and other tax techniques, attorney Ann T. Wilson can help you leverage the tax code to your family’s advantage.
- Prevent unnecessary disputes between your loved ones: We can help you be proactive about preventing family disputes in the future by clearly designating beneficiaries, executors and trustees, eliminating ambiguity from your estate documents.
Designate who will care for you if you become incapacitated and decide what medical interventions you want and do not want: We provide guidance on critical health care tools, including health care directives and powers of attorney. We can prepare your durable power of attorney, health care directives and living will according to your wishes.
