Estate Planning

For one reason or another, it never seems like quite the right time to get your final affairs in order. Yet, the reality is that it is never too early – or too late – to develop or revise an estate plan. The estate planning attorneys at Miller Morton can help you plan for the future, protect your loved ones and minimize the tax consequences of your estate.

We know that your personal situation is different from that of all our other clients, and when working with you to devise an estate plan, we identify your objectives, addressing the specific needs and desires of you and your family. Our attorneys also make sure to take into consideration the potential tax consequences of our plans.

    • Individual wills
    • Revocable and irrevocable trusts
    • Powers of attorney and appointment
    • Planning for and avoiding the probate process
    • Guardianship for minor children
    • Business succession planning for family-owned businesses
    • Creditors’ rights
    • Charitable gifting
Advance Health Care Directives As part of the estate planning process, Miller, Morton, Caillat & Nevis also assists clients with putting in place the necessary documentation to make end-of-life decisions easier for family and friends. To this end, we will always discuss with you the implementation of advance health care directives, which are referred to in some states as living wills.
