Comprehensive Estate Planning Services

Estate planning is something that every person should do. Estate Planning will provide you with tools for tax reduction, avoiding probate and simplifying probate when it cannot be avoided. At the very least, you should have a will that states how you want your property distributed to beneficiaries and a living will that makes your wishes known with regard to your medical care should you become terminally ill.

Many people think that they don't have enough property to justify a will or that they are too young to need a living will. The truth is that there is nothing certain about the future and having a sound estate plan in place can make things much easier on your family if you should pass on unexpectedly.

Depending on your circumstances, a more sophisticated estate plan than a simple will and health care directives may be appropriate. An experienced estate planning lawyer can help you determine the best solution for your particular needs. At the Suffield, Connecticut, law firm of Spellman & Kelly, LLC, we provide comprehensive estate planning services designed to accommodate your specific needs and goals.

Creating a Trust to Benefit Your Loved Ones

A trust is a way for you to identify property to be held for individual beneficiaries. There are usually specific rules associated with the trust including who the trustee will be, how the property will be used or invested until it is distributed, when and how the property will be distributed, and other considerations. Trusts can also be a good way to avoid probate and estate taxes. We will work with you to determine which type of trust would be a good option for your situation.

Attorney Victoria Spellman has extensive experience in all areas of estate planning including probate, tax preparation, wills, trusts and others. She also has a broad background in business law and has worked with many clients who needed help transferring ownership of a family business.

She has conducted seminars on estate planning, trusts and probate for several major financial planning organizations, and for other attorneys. She has a thorough understanding of the law and works hard to provide simple, easy to understand estate plans that achieve her clients' goals and saves money on taxes.
