Estate Planning

Skagit Law Group works with individuals and families to develop estate plans specifically designed to meet the clients’ individual needs and wishes. Our emphasis is on practical strategies for the preservation and orderly transfer of wealth, and on minimizing the potential for transfer tax obligations.  Skagit Law Group’s estate planners have expertise in trusts, taxes, and all types of wealth and property transfers.  This expertise results in comprehensive and tailored plans, providing oversight and valuable guidance throughout the estate administration process.

Our skills allow us to advise clients who have a wide range of financial resources, traditional or blended families, and differing personal circumstances – including complex business entities and complicated tax issues.

Estate planning includes preparing Wills or trust drafted and designed to achieve the clients’ objectives in the division and distribution of their estate following death, and assisting individuals in creating durable powers of attorney for financial matters and for health care so as to allow client intentions to be carried out even when they are unable to carry them out independently.  We assist our estate planning clients with all manner of advance directives.

Our attorneys deeply enjoy our estate planning practice, which enables us to develop long-lasting and valued relationships with our clients.
