Planning for Larger Estates

The focus of estate planning for larger estates is to plan for what you want to happen and to guard against unintended consequences. The legacy you leave for your family can be undone if your estate plan has not been properly drafted.

For decades, The Law Offices of Kennedy & Jackson has prepared and maintained estate plans on behalf of Texas families with significant estates. We limit our legal practice exclusively to estate planning and asset protection. Our two attorneys are each board-certified in estate planning and probate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and each is a frequent lecturer on estate planning topics to other lawyers throughout Texas.

ESTATE PLANNING FOR SIGNIFICANT ASSETS

Our lawyers can help you take proactive steps now to deal with issues such as:

  • Asset-rich and cash-poor estates. Many estates have a significant portion of assets tied up in property. This can create a problem for your beneficiaries when dealing with issues such as taxes.
  • Protection of beneficiaries. Will your children be ready to manage significant assets after your death? Careful estate planning can protect your beneficiaries’ inheritance from predators, creditors, ex-spouses and from themselves.
  • Minimization of taxes. Without estate tax planning, a significant portion of the wealth you spent a lifetime creating can be lost to taxation.
  • Charitable giving. If you want to contribute to an organization, charitable trusts and family foundations can maximize your gift while minimizing taxes.

With prudent forethought and cautious planning, you can create a lasting legacy for your family and the organizations you support, while guarding against the issues you don’t want to happen.
