Estate Planning/Probate

Attorneys In This Field

Menn Law  Firm, Ltd’s estate planners are ready to help you regardless of your stage of life. Whether you are a young adult starting out on your own, a young couple starting a family, a small business owner, a corporate executive, a professional, a farmer, or a retiree, we have an attorney who is prepared to give you practical and cost effective legal counsel. One size does not fit all, and we create customized plans for each client’s unique situation. We view estate planning as a continuous process that changes along with the natural stages of life, and we plan for the unexpected with creative strategies. We work with our clients to identify their goals, and then recommend the legal tools and techniques that will enable them to accomplish those goals in a tax-efficient manner with a minimum of court involvement.

Our goal is to give you peace of mind to help you prepare for the “what-if’s” of life. For example making sure you have people in place who are authorized to make health care and financial decisions for you if you became incapacitated. Or making sure you have preserved your wealth and protected your family in the event of death. We not only create your estate plan, we stand ready to assist your family in carrying out your wishes as promptly and efficiently as possible. We understand when you create your estate plan, you place your trust in us, and when a client dies, the family places its trust in us. We take those responsibilities very seriously.
