Cook Yancey provides highly personalized estate planning services to our clients, including the drafting of such instruments as wills, powers of attorney, and living wills. We also provide sophisticated advice and documentation for a wide range of trust objectives. Whether your estate planning objectives are focused on wealth preservation, family business succession, balancing the interests of children from different marriages, charitable donations, or the minimization of tax exposure, our estate planning attorneys can guide you through such alternatives as the following:

  • Tax advantageous wills and trusts
  • Irrevocable life insurance trusts
  • Charitable trusts and family foundations
  • Generation-skipping trusts
  • Family partnerships and limited liability companies

Our probate estate administration lawyers also represent clients in succession proceedings to execute the terms of a will, assess and resolve claims, perform the necessary accountings and tax returns, and distribute assets to heirs and legatees.
