Estate Planning

Effective estate planning is difficult for several reasons. First, it requires you to focus on some of the unpleasant issues we all face as we get older. Secondly, effective estate planning requires an attorney who understands the tax and other implications involved in the decisions you make. The Azrael Franz attorneys can help clients identify their estate planning goals and prepare a plan that meets their needs while maximizing the value of their estate passing to designated beneficiaries. Azrael Franz also counsels clients on issues related to long-term health care, disability, living wills, powers of attorney and a myriad of other estate planning issues.
