The estate planning attorneys at Cable Huston help clients develop estate plans that allow for the disposition of assets in a manner consistent with our clients’ wishes, while working to minimize administrative costs, unnecessary complications, and taxes (estate, inheritance, generation skipping, gift, and income).
During the estate planning process, we seek to understand our clients’ personal and financial situations and then prepare the plan that best suits their needs and wishes. We help clients in several areas:
Advance Directives for health care
Beneficiary planning for IRAs and other retirement accounts
Charitable giving plans
Life insurance planning
Powers of attorney
Other sophisticated planning
We represent executors, trustees, and beneficiaries of estates and trusts. Probate is the process by which assets are distributed in accordance with a will, or if there is no will, distributed to the heirs as directed by state law. We represent executors through the probate process. If a trust controls the estate, we assist the trustee in the administration of the trust. We assist with filing income tax returns, filing death tax returns (if required), planning for liquidity needs, and making appropriate distributions.
We represent fiduciaries and beneficiaries in litigation related to the administration of a will or trust.
