Sunnyvale Inheritance Tax Attorney

Beneficiaries of estates will need to pay an inheritance tax unless measures are taken to prevent it. We can help you create an estate plan that will protect as many of your assets for future generations as possible.

Do You Need a Will or Trust?

Many of our clients come into our office thinking they want a will, when in fact a trust would better serve their needs, and vice versa. The type of estate planning tool you decide on will depend on your specific needs. Are you a young couple who simply needs a legal document to designate beneficiaries for a life insurance policy? Or, do you have a special needs child who you want to provide for financially without compromising his or her eligibility for government benefits?

These are the types of questions we ask when you sit down at our firm. We take the time to listen carefully to your wishes and goals. Sometimes a last will and testament is enough if a person is younger or has limited assets. People with more significant assets will generally benefit from a trust, whether that is a revocable trust (living trust), irrevocable trust, special needs trust or another type. We will help determine the best tool that will accomplish your goals with the least amount of conflict.
