What Will Happen To Your Business After You Pass Away?
As a professional, you have worked hard to achieve success. What, though, will happen to what you have built after you pass away? Are there systems in place to ensure that rent is collected on your properties if you should pass away or be incapacitated? Is there a clear plan for who will operate your business if you are unable to? These plans are as important as a clear division of your assets, and you need an estate plan and other documentation that addresses that.

Assisting Professionals And Their Families With Estate Planning and Probate
When your estate involves real estate or business ownership, it can be particularly important to establish a plan so that the transfer of your assets goes as smoothly as possible. It can also be important to establish other documentation to ensure that your wishes for your health care, your assets and your business’s operation are followed if you should be incapacitated. The services we offer include:
- Health care declarations and “living wills”
- Powers of attorney
- Trusts (living, testamentary and inter vivos)
In addition to estate planning, our firm also guides families through the probate and administration process. Whether the deceased left a will or passed away without one, we will work to ensure that the transfer of real estate holdings, business ownership and personal property is as orderly as possible, to assist families in preparing relevant tax documentation and to ensure that the probate process doesn’t add to their stress during an already difficult time.
