A cornerstone of Tuesley Hall Konopa’s legal practice is helping business owners and individuals protect and preserve their assets through estate planning and the administration of estates. An estate consists of all the property that a person owns or controls, whether held solely or in some joint manner, and all other money or wealth that would be generated upon someone’s death. An estate plan should allow you to control and manage your property while you are alive and well, take care of you and your loved ones if you become disabled, and when you die allow your property to pass to those you want, when you want, and in the way you want, while saving as many tax dollars, court costs and professional fees as possible. Estates include:

  • Personal property
  • Retirement accounts
  • Life insurance
  • Business interests
  • Real estate
  • Digital assets
  • Debts owed to others
  • Claims you have against others
  • Wills & living wills
  • Trusts & living trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Healthcare directives
