One of the many estate planning tools utilized by our attorneys is the Family Limited Partnership (FLP). An FLP is a sophisticated planning vehicle that can provide significant benefits when properly implemented and maintained. The attorneys at The Wochner Law Firm have successfully used this tool to help families provide an orderly means of managing family wealth, of educating younger family members about business and investment techniques and philosophies, and of protecting family assets from creditors and lawsuits. Our advisors combine the requisite experience with the follow up not often found with larger firms to ensure that each FLP is properly structured and maintained.
If you need assistance in creating or updating an existing will, drafting a health care directive or living will, administering a living trust or probate estate, or avoiding estate and gift taxation, then you need experienced and skilled estate planning attorneys. Do not allow the government to plan your estate distribution after your death. Allow the attorneys at The Wochner Law Firm to provide for your own individual estate planning and asset protection needs.
At The Wochner Law Firm, located in Northbrook, Illinois, we understand that lifetime and end of life estate planning and gifting can be a daunting and confusing experience. That is why we will actively listen to your family, estate and taxation concerns and then clearly explain what we will do to ensure that your wishes are carried out.
