Individualized, Insightful Estate And Tax Planning

Simply stated, proper estate planning is the effective transfer of wealth to a client's beneficiaries in the most tax-efficient manner. However, it can seem like an intricate problem when you consider the "who, how much, when and how" components of this equation. Attorney Ron Pohl is adept at breaking these questions down and providing insight that leads to clarity and confidence for our clients.

Executed properly, gifting can do wonderful things for your children, grandchildren, other family members and the charitable causes you value. Further, you probably know that carefully planned gifting makes sense because it means the money will go where you want it to, rather than being left exposed to significant taxation.

Knowledge, Experience And Personal Commitment You Can Rely Upon

At the Pohl Law Group, we believe that a successful estate plan can be envisioned and achieved only by fully understanding the individual client's personal needs and business goals. We look at the big picture before proposing an estate plan, and we always keep key issues in full view. That includes family dynamics, control, health, business and personal assets, liabilities, and taxes.

An estate plan is effective only if it is properly implemented — and brilliant estate plans sometimes fail due to lack of diligence. We advise and assist our clients in following through on all aspects and elements of their estate plans.
