At the law offices of Ferguson Cohen LLP, the approaches used for estate planning are as unique and individualized as our clients themselves. We provide each client with the personalized attention necessary to make informed decisions, choosing from a broad selection of vehicles to meet his or her objectives.
We focus on providing effective advice in a personal and timely manner. The only way we know how to create comprehensive estate plans is to invest the time to understand your objectives. Our clients are never left questioning whether their concerns are important to us.
A well-structured estate plan is a reflection of your life, highlighted by your accomplishments and the people you love and trust.
We use a number of estate planning tools that will minimize the federal estate tax and also help you avoid probate. These include family limited partnerships, charitable remainder trusts, living revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts and the implementation of gifting programs.
