Estate Planning and Trust and Probate [Top]

Most people would rather not think about what will happen when they die. However, the ones that do think about it leave much more asset value and far fewer complications for their heirs. Frenette & Associates 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 may be taxed. Where they are distributed and how much they are taxed depends on having a well-thought out estate plan. Frenette & Associates 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.

Because inheritance can be subject to a variety of federal and state, estate and income taxes, you need competent advice to preserve the value of your assets. Depending on your circumstances and wishes, this may involve gifts, trusts, powers of attorney and wills.

Finally, your estate plan needs to be a flexible document, something you can adapt as tax laws, investment opportunities and your own personal circumstances change. We help clients meet these personal and family objectives through care and attention to specific client needs.

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. Frenette & Associates offers our clients estate administration, guiding families through the probate 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 and 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 Frenette & Associates, we realize how sensitive these matters are and provide caring, confidential counsel for clients and their families.
