Probate, Estate Planning & Elder Law

Traditional estate planning has two components: first, tax planning designed to preserve large estates while limiting taxation; second, common-sense planning through wills, trusts, powers of attorney and various directives for guardianship, end-of-life care decisions and burial.

Meanwhile, ‘elder law’ typically adds a component to ‘estate planning’ focused upon preserving fairly modest estates in preparation for eventual dependent care (nursing home care).

Last, ‘probate’ is the historic description given to the protection and settlement of the estates of the incapacitated and dead. The terms ‘estate planning’ and ‘elder law’ typically refer to events preceding incapacity or death (and thus, preceding Probate Court).
