More than Wills in Norfolk
Estate planning is often reduced to writing wills. Additionally, people often view estate planning as merely looking towards the how their property should be distributed once they are deceased. However, estate planning is much more than that. Residents of Norfolk should view estate planning as part of lifetime financial planning. The goal is to develop an estate plan that will protect the assets of individuals and ensure the future financial security of their families. The complex maze of tax rules both at the federal and state level, the diversity of assets that a client might have in his or her portfolio, and the modern family dynamics that might be at play, requires that estate planning be performed holistically. That is why our law firmvalues creativity in the process. We will take the time to listen to our clients, conduct comprehensive legal research and analysis to be able to present the entire range of legal options available, and make a recommendation based on what the best strategy might be for each clientâs unique situation.
