Drawing on our extensive experience in all aspects of estate planning, probate, elder law, and tax, we work with clients and their financial advisors to protect assets and strategically transfer wealth to beneficiaries while minimizing the federal and state transfer and income tax consequences. We prepare the wills, trusts, powers-of-attorney and other instruments needed to affect these strategies, as well as administering and settling estates, preparing estate tax returns, and planning business successions. We have also successfully represented clients in their disputes with the Internal Revenue Service and the Mississippi Department of Revenue.
Carefully considering each client's family situation, assets and the tax opportunities available to them, we tailor plans to help each individual reach his or her personal goals, giving clients and their families the peace of mind they need and deserve.
