Wills & Estate Planning
An estate plan includes the understanding of the accumulation, conservation, and distribution of the assets of an individual upon his or her death. At Schiller, Pittenger & Galvin, P.C., we offer a diverse range of estate planning services to achieve our clients’ goals, including but not limited to the drafting of wills, trusts, powers of attorney and advance healthcare directives. Our firm’s goal is to help our clients determine individual goals regarding the transfer of assets at death, how the government might tax those assets at death, and how each of those factors can be planned for to accomplish the goals of the client. In addition, our attorneys offer assistance with obtaining the appointment of an executor, and trustee, if any, designated in the will, or the appointment of an administrator; guiding the executor, administrator or trustee in undertaking the gathering of information as to the assets and debts of the decedent; and effecting the distribution of assets in accordance with the terms of the applicable document or the laws of the state.
