Trusts and Estates

At our founding nearly four decades ago, Flaster Greenberg was a two-person tax law boutique. Today, having evolved into a full-service law firm of approximately 65 attorneys, we rely on the unique insight and uncommon perspective inherent in our history to develop estate plans that satisfy financial considerations as well as family objectives. We recognize that successful estate plans should be structured to accomplish preservation of a lifetime of assets, through careful strategies that minimize tax consequences. But, in addition, we are responsive to the sensitivities and personal issues inherent within the family dynamic. We pride ourselves on thoughtful, careful planning, and consideration of the big picture that takes into account the personal needs, goals and values of our clients, as well as the financial element.

Our clients are individuals, executors and trustees, business owners, executives and others whose needs, objectives and goals are as varied and as complex as are they. For every client, our approach is to safeguard assets, minimize taxes, and to craft an estate plan that reflects each client’s wishes faithfully by utilizing the most effective and efficient financial and legal strategies for your particular situation and circumstances.

We employ an integrated approach to planning to ensure smooth transition of assets, seamless business succession and consensus among beneficiaries and stakeholders. Our attorneys design plans utilizing a comprehensive approach for financially complex estates, estates involving closely-held businesses and those with significant real property portfolios. Our experience demonstrates the value of the integrated approach in resolving differences, reducing or eliminating disputes, and substantially decreasing the likelihood of subsequent legal challenges.

Flaster Greenberg’s attorneys remain continually updated on new and changing tax laws and regulations, and take advantage of all available techniques to reduce the impact of federal and state estate, gift, generation-skipping and inheritance taxes, which together can claim more than half of an individual's taxable estate.
