Estate Planning And Trust Formation
When a person passes away, the existence of a well-structured estate plan can potentially save the estate from significant liabilities, including unwanted tax liability. A carefully crafted estate plan can also eliminate a large number of family disputes regarding the disposition of the decedent’s assets. Shulman Bastian Friedman & Bui LLP has attorneys ready to advise, strategize and create the right estate plan through the formation of the appropriate trust instruments.
Probate And Other Estate Administration
Whether a family member dies intestate or with only a will or with a carefully crafted estate plan, our attorneys are experienced in providing legal guidance in how the estate is to be administered. The firm can help the surviving family members or the estate’s trustee navigate through the complex tax and probate laws to ensure your decedent’s family member’s wishes are properly carried out. In the unfortunate event an estate ends up in litigation, our experienced trial lawyers have experience in litigating probate-related matters.
