Give Your Family Peace of Mind with Comprehensive Estate Planning
I often say the best time to find me is before you need me. Like many other things, it is usually better to solve estate planning concerns before they turn into problems. Although a portion of my practice is to help families navigate messy situations, it’s a much more pleasant experience for everyone involved to work on their estate planning needs and goals ahead of time. Setting up a structured process on how assets are assigned and protected in the case of your incapacity or passing, will save your family stress, uncertainty, and avoidable costs. Everyone needs a plan but not everyone needs the same thing. Let’s work together to set something up that will achieve your specific needs and goals.
Attorney Michael A. Kasberg provides specialized estate planning needs to families that would like to plan their own estates, as well as settle the estate of a deceased family member. Attorney Kasberg advises clients in all areas of estate planning to protect their assets and plan for the future, including wealth transition planning, disability planning, special needs, Medicaid/Masshealth and related aspects of probate law. In addition to the preparation of wills, trusts and other estate planning documents designed to minimize estate taxes and ensure the disposition of property in accordance with our clients’ wishes, we also assist clients in structuring and implementing lifetime gift strategies.
Attorney Kasberg recognizes that each family has different needs and will meet those specific needs by creating powers of attorney and health care proxies, as well as various types of trusts, such as revocable trusts and irrevocable trusts, including trusts for special needs and nursing home protection. We can create or update your will to declare your wishes and guide your loved ones in the event of death or incapacity. We explore the most advantageous trusts and asset protection strategies to limit estate taxes, avoid probate and shelter inheritance from creditors. We also have experience in securing the appointments of guardians and conservators and advise clients on all aspects of their ongoing responsibilities.
