What We Do
We serve the specialized planning needs of successful individuals and families.
By combining your legal, financial, tax, philanthropic, and business matters into a unified plan we can:
- Solidify your control over your affairs.
- Assure the continuance of your lifestyle through tax-free conversion of paper profits.
- Protect your wealth and income from legal judgements.
- Eliminate or substantially reduce capital gain and income taxes.
- Manage the value of your business interests.
- Facilitate your ability to pass value, responsibility, and work stewardship ethics to your heirs.
- Eliminate or substantially reduce excise, gift, estate, and generation skipping taxes.
- Keep your affairs free from publicity, and the costs or delay of probate.
In short, we can bring order to your affairs and generate very substantial tax savings while meeting your specialized objectives.
Over the years, we have learned that forward progress to reaching our goals requires clarity. Clarity comes with determining the why you are planning as well as the what you want to have happen.
Life is full of milestones, opportunities, and choices – many of which are financial in nature. Having a plan in place can better prepare you to make appropriate decisions when those events arise. We believe that planning is a dynamic process that should evolve with the changes in your life. Our process begins by learning about you and your unique circumstances. Understanding your current situation will help us guide you to make appropriate decisions throughout your journey.
There are key stages (transitions) throughout a lifetime that have a significant impact on living. These stages all have financial implications.
