The Process

Sign the Lease

As a first step, Michael will get to know you (and your spouse/partner) – your values, family situation, personal wealth goals, and community interests. After one or more meetings, Michael will propose a comprehensive and tailored estate plan and specify the required vehicles and documents to fully protect and preserve your family’s legacy. 

Estate plans often include:

  • Last wills and testaments

  • Revocable or "living" trusts 

  • Grantor or non-grantor trusts

  • Credit shelter trusts

  • Irrevocable life insurance trusts 

  • Medical directives      

  • Charitable giving plans     

He will balance concerns around taxes and confidentiality after you pass away with ensuring that you have sufficient assets and income for the remainder of your life.
