Our attorneys can help with everything from the “basic” documents to mutigenerational trusts.
We offer comprehensive individual, fiduciary and partnership tax preparation services by our attorneys, including advice on tax planning, alternative strategies, and audits.
We handle estate administration in DC, Virginia and Maryland. When a loved one dies, it is imperative to have a clear understanding of the steps that are necessary to wrap up the decedent’s affairs, and to carry out the decedent’s instructions as reflected by Will or Trust.
These steps may include filing the decedent’s Will, petitioning the local court for probate when necessary, filing the decedent’s final tax returns, searching out assets, distributing tangible property, selling real estate, setting up estate or trust accounts, preparing fiduciary accountings, filing estate returns when necessary, and obtaining proper receipts and releases for the distribut ion of property. Needless to say, it can be a daunting process. We will guide you through every step with much or as little guidance as you need.
COORDINATION WITH OTHER PROFESSIONALS
Whether you come to us for estate or tax related services, we are committed to work together with your other advisors, even if our roles sometimes overlap. We view other professionals as our colleagues, not as adversaries, so we will do what we can to coordinate the various resources necessary to fulfill your planning objectives.
