Estate Planning and Wealth Management

TLC offers highly personalized estate plans to achieve wealth preservation goals for yourself and your loved ones.

An effective estate plan can help you avoid a costly and lengthy probate in court and put money into the pockets of your loved ones much faster. Did you know that probate fees can cost up to $46,000 for an estate valued around $1,000,000 dollars? Estate planning can save up to 5% of a typical estate’s value in probate fees.

Other reasons for having an estate plan include:

  • Limiting taxes when transferring gifts to heirs
  • Protecting assets from creditors
  • Transferring your business at your retirement, disability, or death
  • Establishing a guardian for a minor
  • Ensuring medical and health care in accordance with your wishes
  • Adding or updating beneficiaries on life insurance and retirement plans

At TLC we use trusts, wills, powers of attorney, asset protection, charitable planning, and more, to help families preserve their wealth for future generations.

The estate planning process begins with an in-depth meeting where TLC will obtain your detailed information, listen to your wishes, answer your questions, and outline the options and steps for creating your custom estate plan. TLC attorney Jacqueline Mittelstadt can also meet clients at their home.
