Estate Planning

Trusts, Wills and Power of Attorneys


In today's uncertain tax environment, proper estate planning is essential.  From the basic estate plan for a family with limited assets, to large and complex estates, Lax Vaughan has attorneys and staff with the expertise and experience to accomplish the estate planning goals of our clients while making sure each client’s plan is current with the most recent developments and changes to applicable laws.

Our attorneys have advanced degrees in taxation and extensive experience advising both moderate and high net worth individuals and families in the preparation of estate plans and drafting of trusts and wills that minimize potential estate taxes as well as ensuring that clients' estates are protected and distributed in accordance with their objectives.


Even if an estate is unlikely to be subject to estate taxes, having a properly prepared estate plan is important for income tax planning and avoiding probate with the court, which can take a long time and be costly.


We also regularly advise clients on planning issues related to business succession, asset protection, elder care, and planning for those with disabilities and special needs.
