Preserving a legacy of wealth for heirs

Assets that you accumulate over your lifetime can be taxed again at the time of your death through an estate tax.  Effective planning can help you ward off the unnecessary expenses associated with estate taxes and preserve more of your wealth for your heirs by exercising tax deferral strategies that exist during your lifetime.  At The Law Offices of Edwards & Johnson, LLC, our lawyers are highly familiar with various methods of asset transfer and can guide you towards the best possible asset transfer scenario.

Tax deferrals, wealth transfer and health management

Proper advanced planning can help you manage your wealth, your health and your legacy.  Estate plans may consist of any combination of the following types of legal documents:

  • Wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills
  • Guardianships and conservatorships
  • Medical directives
  • Healthcare directives
  • Medicare and Medicaid
  • Trusts
