Estate Planning, Wills and Trusts

Estate Planning includes the creation of wills, trusts and other instruments for the administration of individual and business assets. Probate is the representation in court of a party’s interest with regard to an estate.

Our estate planning attorneys bring together experience in a variety of disciplines to provide the highest quality of counsel to the individual, family, and business in creatively and effectively planning for the distribution of property between generations and to charitable organizations.

Because the rules governing personal and business taxation are complex and continually changing, Saliterman & Siefferman work continuously to ensure our attorneys have access to the broadest base of knowledge. Important in this effort is the strong connections we maintain with accounting, taxation, and insurance professionals, as well as finance and other advisors.

An important aspect of our consultation, as with the other disciplines under which we provide legal services, is our ability to see beyond the immediate problem into areas that affect or are affected by a client’s specific estate planning issues and goals.

Saliterman & Siefferman attorneys have drafted hundreds of estate plans ranging from simple wills to complex multi-trust estate plans. The common element among the simple and complex estate plans is that they are tailored to the needs of the individual client.
