Estate Planning To Protect Your Assets And Provide Guidance In The Future
With offices in Bethesda, Silver Spring, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., The Eleff Law Group provides comprehensive legal counsel in matters of estate and incapacity planning, and estate administration (probate).
With more than 40 years of experience, Susan Eleff is well-qualified to offer legal guidance to document your choices and protect your family’s assets.
A Practical Approach To Estate Planning
A well-prepared estate plan may include a will as well as trusts, powers of attorney and advance medical directives, depending on your needs and priorities. If your estate is more complex, it may be wise to consider the future of business interests with an emphasis on business succession planning or accommodating high net-worth estates with advanced tax planning.
Susan Eleff and her team help clients keep the money they’ve earned by providing practical legal counsel. Their hallmark is protecting their clients’ interests with a tailored approach. One size does not fit all in estate planning, and the firm does not burden clients or their budgets with more legal services than they need.
With Susan Eleff as your estate planning lawyer, the process begins with a questionnaire and her instructions to spend no more than five minutes filling it out. After you complete the confidential questionnaire, you will meet by telephone or in the office to discuss your needs to allow Ms. Eleff and her team to begin crafting an estate plan to accomplish your goals.
Depending on the details of your estate, Susan Eleff may recommend a simple will to direct the distribution of assets. If appropriate, she may suggest a revocable trust to minimize the probate process. When there is a disabled loved one in the family, she will discuss whether a special needs trust is the right document to provide you with peace of mind that he or she will be well-provided for in your absence. Special provisions may be appropriate in situations with blended families or unmarried domestic partners. High net worth estates provide additional opportunities to minimize estate taxes while preserving “stepped up basis” and may include considerations for life insurance, family limited partnerships or asset protection measures.
Whether you need just one estate planning document or a suite of documents, The Eleff Law Group will help you construct a customized and practical estate plan that protects your interests and those of your loved ones.
The firm also assists with issues that arise after the death of a loved one, as their estate proceeds through the probate and estate administration processes.
