Start Planning Today
It is never too soon to start planning for the future. However most clients put off estate planning because they are afraid of the unknown. As a Queens estate planning attorney, many of our high net worth clients’ biggest fears are losing control of their assets. The fact is with the help of experienced lawyers you can create a family limited partnership, which insulates any and all of your assets from both judgments and estate tax liability when set up properly. Most importantly, as the creator of the family limited partnership you retain all control over the assets within the partnership and can even dissolve it at any time if you change your mind.
If your wealth continues to grow over the years, it may be a good time to sit down with our legal team at the Law Offices of Jason W. Stern & Associates. Our offices are conveniently located on Queens Boulevard at the corner of 71st Avenue in The Cord Meyer Building.
