Estate Planning

The lawyers at the Weinheimer Opel Law Firm have helped hundreds of clients in all aspects of estate planning—from a simple will to a complex multi-million dollar, multi-generational estate plan. We keep up with the ever-changing tax, probate and trust laws to help our clients meet their estate planning goals. Using sophisticated tax-planning, we can develop a plan to help multiple generations reduce taxes. We use creative solutions to develop business succession plans, charitable foundations, marital agreements and trusts, and incorporate those into a comprehensive estate plan containing wills, health care directives, and powers of attorney: our clients rest easy knowing their family and assets are protected and their goals will be accomplished even after they are gone.
