Estate planning is one component of elder law. The term “elder law” refers to a group of legal practice areas that address the needs of seniors. In addition to estate planning, older individuals may need a guardian or conservator, help with long-term care planning or Medicaid planning, protection from exploitation, or help probating a loved one’s estate. The Centerville elder law attorneys of Gudorf Law Group are experienced in addressing the legal needs of older Ohioans, fulfilling our responsibilities with care and compassion.
You’ve worked hard to accumulate the assets you have. You have dedicated yourself to providing for your family, perhaps building up a farm or business to benefit your children and grandchildren. The last thing you want to see happen is for your hard-earned assets to go to creditors instead. Our Centerville asset protection attorneys can create an estate plan designed specifically for asset protection, so your property benefits you and your loved ones—not creditors.
Tax planning is part and parcel of making an estate plan. You don’t want your assets to go toward paying for a nursing home or to creditors, and you certainly don’t want them to go to the government in the form of unnecessary taxes. Everyone should pay their fair share of taxes, but no one should have to pay more than their share. Our Centerville tax planning attorneys will devise a plan to minimize gift tax, estate tax, and generation-skipping transfer tax, so that more of your property goes to the people you love.
