No one wants to see the assets that he or she has accumulated over a lifetime be diminished by the IRS or creditors. Part of the mission of an estate planning attorney is to minimize the inheritance tax impact on the decedent’s estate. This is frequently accomplished by establishing trusts for intended beneficiaries. But asset preservation does not end with estate planning. Oftentimes, the way that the estate is probated can affect the portion of assets that can be distributed to beneficiaries. Paul M. Kade is able to advise personal representatives on the preferred way to calculate assets and settle outstanding obligations.
