Estate Planning

In many ways, it's a perfect fit for a business and contracts lawyer to also provide estate planning services. After all, wills, trusts and other estate planning tools are, at their core, contracts that individuals make with their loved ones.

At the Law Offices of James W. Talbot, PLLC, in Seattle, Washington, we create comprehensive estate plans that provide our clients the peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are protected and will be taken care of. We provide the information, options and sound guidance you need to build and achieve your legacy.

If you have an existing estate plan or a business succession plan, it may be an opportune time to have an experienced estate planning lawyer review it to make sure it still accomplishes your goals.

Family and Business Succession Guidance In Western Washington

Our business law clients pour their hearts into creating and cultivating their companies. It only makes sense to create a business succession plan that will produce continued growth in the event of a death or incapacitation. Attorney Talbot will create a plan that is tailored to suit your objectives for the future.

By having the same lawyer who drafts your business formation documents or partnership agreements also create your comprehensive estate plan, you will ensure yourself of a seamless continuity that is vital to addressing every aspect of a business succession plan. You can identify the company managers or business owners who will take your place, as well as the roles any family members will take.

We can create an estate plan that calls for business ownership to pass to a family member or one that triggers a sales agreement to a partner in the event of death or should you become incapacitated.

It's also imperative to address estate tax issues in order to minimize the tax hit, and to pass the bulk of your assets to your heirs. A living trust may allow your assets to avoid probate and provide for a smooth transition of leadership for your company.

Whether you are a business owner or an individual in need of personal estate planning services, we welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your estate planning needs. Call 206-605-9047 or use our contact form to schedule an appointment.
