The planning needs that surround one’s own eventual death or the death of a loved one are never pleasant. Yet, such planning is necessary. At the Law Office of Jane F. Wolk, LLC, we believe that proper attention to such matters can alleviate some of the anxiety and confusion that otherwise accompany these inevitable life events. We treat each client as an individual, with respect and concern. We listen carefully, to learn what is important to you, and then structure an estate plan that will achieve the results you want.
Estate planning is a creative field of law and we take pride in solving problems in a way that is both compassionate and efficient. This requires imagination, experience, a comprehensive knowledge of constantly changing tax laws, and professional attention to detail.
Solutions to estate planning problems can require more than the preparation of a Will. At the Law Offices of Jane F. Wolk, LLC, we are also skilled in the use of various forms of trusts to carry out objectives such as tax minimization, management of assets for a child, or transfer of assets to the next generation. We are experienced in the use of sophisticated estate planning vehicles, such as Qualified Personal Residence Trusts, Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts, Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts, and others.
Increasingly, clients are concerned with their own ability to handle financial and healthcare matters for themselves during their own lifetimes. Living wills and powers of attorney that are tailored to meet the client’s unique requirements often provide the solutions.
