Comprehensive Estate Planning

Estate planning is for anyone who wants to have control over their own care and finances during a disability as well as the distribution of assets after they pass.


When you become incapacitated, it is important to have someone you trust make decisions that affect your medical and personal care as well as manage all your financial affairs.


When the courts become involved to either protect a minor or safeguard someone who has become incapacitated, you need an experienced lawyer that understands this complicated process.

Tax Planning

We can help you legitimately and legally minimize the amount of tax your beneficiaries will pay. At First Class Counsel we can help you evaluate your tax situation and advise you accordingly.

Business Succession Planning

Without proper planning, tax costs can create a substantial liability for your heirs. The best course of action is to have a succession plan in place that has already accounted for this contingency.

Retirement Planning

We work with you to preserve your wealth. If you have a retirement account, it is important to know about an IRA Trust. The proceeds of the IRA can be distributed to your beneficiaries, with the added advantage of creditor protection.
