Attorneys with estate planning experience help people minimize federal and state estate tax and other death taxes, whether they are initially setting up or modifying their estate details. Estate planning attorneys create and revise wills, trusts, including living trusts, revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts, spendthrift trusts and provisions for minor children. They can help create, revise, and interpret durable powers of attorney, living wills, and health care powers of attorney. They can also handle probate matters. They can also help evaluate and employ asset protection techniques from life insurance trusts to family limited partnerships. Their expertise can help avoid possible will contests or other claims against an estate.
