Practice Area: Estate Law

Most people would rather not think about what will happen when they die. However, the ones that do think about it leave greater asset value and far fewer complications for their heirs. Mark R. Lewis can help you navigate the complex and multi-faceted labyrinth of Estate Law, including estate planning and administration.

Estate Planning

At the end of your life, your assets will be distributed and taxed. Where they are distributed and how much they are taxed depends on having a well-thought out estate plan. Because inheritance can be subject to a variety of federal and state income and/or estate taxes, you need competent advice to preserve the value of your assets. Mark R. Lewis will help you put a plan in place that will protect your financial assets by translating your wishes into legal directives, with minimal tax impact.

The first step in estate planning is to decide how you want your assets distributed. Whether you are married or single, with or without a family, it is important to streamline, and in some cases avoid, the probate process by ensuring that your assets are properly held and their disposition clearly spelled out in binding legal documents. Special attention must be given to those with blended or second families, and those with non-traditional family units.

Finally, your estate plan needs to contain flexible documents. The documents may adapt as tax laws, investment opportunities and your own personal circumstances change.

Estate Administration

When a family is faced with the death of a loved one, the last thing they want is to deal with legal details. Our firm offers our clients estate administration, by guiding families through the process and relieving them of the worry and confusion it can cause. This may include handling estate and gift tax matters, obtaining asset valuations, managing probate court filings, court proceedings and other related activities.

Caring and Discrete Advisors

Estate Law involves more than just legalities and tax matters; it concerns people’s most personal issues, often when they are emotionally overwhelmed. At Mark R. Lewis PC, we realize how sensitive these matters are and provide caring, confidential counsel for clients and their families.
