Our goal is to provide the highest quality legal advice regarding the transfer and management of our clients' wealth and administration of a decedent’s estate. The Estate Planning practice at VLA differs from other firms in that the emphasis is on wealth maximization, rather than simply minimizing taxes. Our attorneys are well trained in the Estate Planning field and use the most up-to-date techniques to maximize wealth for future generations. This includes advising and creating family limited partnerships and LLCs, sophisticated life insurance trusts, dynasty trusts, grantor retained annuity trusts, and charitable reminder and lead trusts.
Estate Planning involves advisors from the various disciplines in financial planning. Our attorneys are adept at working with financial planners, accounting professionals and other advisors. In addition to working with our client’s outside professionals, we add the resources of our firm’s other practice areas to provide truly comprehensive Estate Planning.
