Trusts and Estate Planning


A well-drafted estate plan provides financial security and peace of mind for individuals and their families. At Beckmen Law, we assist with the preservation, protection, and transfer of multi-generational wealth while advising clients on tax planning.

High estate and gift taxes can significantly diminish inheritances. Accordingly, we use a variety of methods to avoid or reduce these taxes and other potential estate penalties. We also help you define and protect your legacy with effective succession planning using wills, trusts, and the designation of successors in interest.

Succession planning for family-owned businesses is a large component of our practice and critical to many persons who have, over the course of time and with work and focus, grown and nurtured a thriving business. We help business ease the transition for their loved ones who may choose or be forced to assume responsibility for difficult business decisions.

In addition to estate planning, our practice also includes:

  • Probate of wills
  • Heirship
  • Estate Administration
  • Guardianship of minors and incapacitated adults
  • Special-needs trusts
  • Fiduciary litigation
  • Asset protection

Our clients rely on us to guide them through important personal and financial choices to meet their individual needs. At Beckmen Law, we take that responsibility seriously.
