Maryland Wills and Estate Planning Attorney with a Mission to Empower Women
Serving the Estate Planning Needs of Annapolis, Bowie, Upper Marlboro, Baltimore and Surrounding Areas
Estate planning encompasses more than just the creation of a will. It involves the strategic distribution of your assets and the development of a comprehensive healthcare plan to address potential mental or physical incapacitation before death. A well-rounded estate plan typically consists of a Last Will and Testament, an Advance Medical Directive, and a Power of Attorney. By proactively crafting an estate plan now, you can spare your loved ones the burdensome and public probate process. Furthermore, an effective estate plan can offer tax advantages, allowing more of your wealth to remain within your family.
For business owners, a robust estate plan is an essential component of family business succession planning. We specialize in helping you structure your business to facilitate a seamless transition to the next generation or a smooth sale to a third party. With a carefully devised succession plan in place, you can find peace of mind for both yourself and your family.
Every estate and family have unique circumstances and requirements, which is why it’s crucial to tailor your estate plan accordingly. Our dedicated Maryland Estate Planning Attorney, Elsa W. Smith, is here to collaborate with you in creating a personalized plan that aligns with your financial objectives and safeguards the future of your family.
