Estate Planning

Estate planning is the act of organizing the assets of one's estate to create a balance of safety, growth and tax savings according to the needs of the estate holder.  Goals of estate planning might include aggressive growth in the owner's younger years to income and tax savings in his or her elder years.  An important part of estate planning is the structuring of assets to allow the expedited transfer of an estate to heirs with as few taxes as possible.  Provisions can be included in an estate structure to provide for grandchildren, charities or others upon the passing of the estate owner.

Basic tools of estate planning include wills, various uses of trusts, powers of appointment, annuities and other insurance instruments, various forms of real estate ownership, powers of attorney, medical powers of attorney, living wills, etc.  The larger an estate is the more flexibility the owner of the estate has to make use of various legal structures so the estate is handled properly and passes to the heirs as the owner wishes upon death.
