Good estate planning is about more than just drafting documents. It’s about your family and your family’s future. The Salzman Law Office believes in building lasting relationships with our clients, rooted in trust and focused on simplifying the complexities of estate law. We empower our clients so you can make clear, informed choices – the choices that are best for you and your family.
No two wills, like no two families or individuals, are alike and our will drafting process embraces the individuality of every family. The Salzman Law Office meets with each of our clients prior to beginning to learn about you and your needs. We solicit client input throughout the drafting process and work with you over time to keep your will current. The result is an individually tailored will document that will serve the needs of you and your loved ones for generations to come.
The best plan for a particular estate can be a family or individual trust. As we learn about our clients through the initial consultation, we work with you to determine when, and why, this is the best strategy. Our firm is skilled at drafting the documents necessary to ensure that your trust assets, and your family’s best interests, are protected. And, we help you understand the trust so you have confidence in your estate plan.
There are few areas of the law that estate planning does not touch. We partner with clients to assist in the far-reaching implications of estate planning from taxes to health care. We have the broad-based experience necessary to handle any related legal, financial, or administrative issues that may arise. The goal of estate planning is always to avoid court. But if our clients find themselves in the position of having to go to court we have the expertise to resolve matters swiftly and effectively.
In Their Words
"As parents of a teenager with special needs, our estate planning process was more complicated than most. We had a difficult time finding a lawyer with the knowledge and the skill to create a trust to provide for our daughter well into the future. Adam had not only the expertise necessary to create the necessary legal arrangements, he also had the sensitivity to address our concerns and priorities. We highly recommend him."
Jeff & Tamara
"We were unsure of what estate planning options existed for us as a same-sex couple. Adam walked us through the full range of options and took the time to educate us on each one of them. His patience and advice made it possible for us to finally know that security as a family for the first time."
Lori & Alicia
"Estate planning was on our to-do list for years. We avoided it, in part, because we imagined it was going to be a tremendously difficult process, wrought with complexity and confusion. Instead, we felt informed and empowered working with Adam. He crafted a personalized estate plan and explained the laws and our options, in ways we could understand. Adam’s approach gave us confidence to navigate challenging decisions and we would not have trusted our family’s future to anyone else."
