Trusts & Estates
Many different approaches are available for planning trusts and estates. At the Law Office of Ferguson Cohen LLP, we provide each client with the personalized attention necessary to make informed decisions, choosing from a broad selection of vehicles to meet our client’s objectives. A variety of trust options include revocable living trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts, inter vivos trusts, lead trusts, remainder trusts, credit shelter trusts and testamentary trusts to name a few.
Within the guidelines of the federal and state tax codes and through our experience and expertise, we offer individuals, families, fiduciaries, and private businesses the means to create, manage, preserve and transfer assets with minimal taxation. If needed, we deal with the IRS regarding the processing and audit of Estate and Gift Tax Returns. Our attorneys assist clients in drafting complex Wills and trusts, in the creation of family partnerships and family limited liability companies, as well as more personalized planning for aging, such as lifetime assistance for elder care, Advance Health Care Directives or Living Wills, and Durable Powers of Attorney for asset management, in case of diminished capacity.
We also offer trust and Will interpretation, estate administration through probate, and legal services for contested probate.
