Almost half of the people in the United States die without a will to administer their estate.

Depending on the size of the estate and nature of the assets, the value of the estate can be reduced by tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars due to unnecessary taxes and other administrative costs.

An estate plan is a collection of legal documents that define the proper management of assets during life, through disability, and after death. A typical estate plan includes wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and living wills that we customize to the unique needs of our clients.

Additional components may be added as needed such as charitable remainder trusts, grandchild education trusts, income tax planning, irrevocable asset protection trusts, irrevocable trust modifications or terminations, transfer-on-death designations, firearm trusts, and life insurance trusts.

In some cases, the Trusts we prepare for clients are used to limit estate taxes, gift taxes, reduce creditor claims, and provide asset protection related to Medicaid. Our firm helps clients with Elder Law planning to limit the depletion of resources due to the nursing home expense.

At CMRS, we are committed to the efficient administration of your estate or that of a loved one, including the expeditious distribution of assets and the minimization of estate taxes, income taxes, and other expenses. Our firm provides services related to Probate Estate Administration.
