The attorneys at Meuleman Mollerup believe that effective estate planning takes knowledge and experience. Many people have a basic understanding of estate planning and what it entails, but eventually questions arise that need specific attention. Many times people make decisions based on preliminary understanding of estate planning and key terms and definitions that explain general concepts of estates, wills, probate, etc., without having all the pieces to the puzzle.
The attorneys at Meuleman Mollerup believe a well thought out estate plan concerns itself with the creation of an estate where none would otherwise exist, the increase of an existing estate to meet the needs of the owner and his or her family, and the preservation and protection of the estate from unnecessary taxes and costs. With every client, our objective is to ascertain the client’s individual needs and circumstances and create an estate plan that provides for the best utilization of assets during the client’s lifetime, while also providing for the disposition of assets on death in such a way that the estate being passed on is maximized, and is left in accordance with the wishes of the decedent and the needs of the family. In carrying out this goal, we strongly believe that this task cannot be accomplished unless we first ascertain, in a very careful manner, the client’s objectives. We also work closely with other professionals such as insurance agents, financial planners and accountants that make up the estate planning team to take advantage of the expertise of each professional that will contribute to the client’s estate plan.
