Estate Planning

At Baker Law, we help clients identify and accomplish their unique estate planning goals, from preserving and transferring personal wealth to leaving significant charitable gifts.

When we provide estate planning, we are providing peace of mind.

At Baker Law, we start by listening to your specific needs, concerns, and family circumstances. We then work with you to develop a comprehensive plan that you understand, and that helps protect you, your family, and your assets. In addition, we confer with your other professional advisors, such as your accountant, investment manager, and insurance advisor.

Keeping each individual’s goals in mind, we design and implement estate plans that include the following elements:

  • Revocable living trusts
  • Last wills & testaments
  • Personal residence trusts
  • Irrevocable life insurance trusts
  • Gift and charitable giving programs
  • Generational trusts
  • Intentionally “defective” trusts
  • Intergenerational loans
  • Domestic asset protection trusts
  • Family limited partnerships and limited liability companies
  • Durable powers of attorney
  • Health care directives
