Estate Planning and Litigation

Meticulous estate planning saves families heartaches and reduces the tax burden. Many approach estate planning merely as a way to bequeath their property and, finished with their plans to distribute their money, believe their planning is done. But when a decedent dies, the family is left behind. For sure, money is important, but so too is recognizing longstanding, deeply emotional love and bonds as well as jealousies and envy. Thoughtful estate planning can affirm the love and family ties. Compassion, empathy, insight and experience are key to Wasser | Russ estate planning.
