Estate Planning

Estate planning is sometimes an uncomfortable subject, but it is a very important activity that demands thoroughness, sensitivity and creativity. Attorney Mucci understands the complexities of estate planning and employs a personalized strategy developed to satisfy each client's goals, while shifting wealth from one generation to the next in a tax-efficient manner. Attorney Mucci can assist clients in the design, drafting and execution of a complete estate plan. He understands that people work hard to accumulate assets, and he understands the importance of protecting those assets and seeing that they are properly passed on to the next generation.

Attorney Mucci can draft a variety of estate planning documents including a:

  • Last will and testament
  • Trust
  • Durable power of attorney
  • Health care proxy

Attorney Mucci will work closely with clients, client's families and trusted advisors to design an estate plan that effectively achieves the client's objectives. The first goal of any estate plan is to provide for a seamless transition of power of the estate to an agent or personal representative at time of disability, unconsciousness or death. A health care proxy and durable power of attorney provide your agent with the powers to make medical treatment decisions for your benefit if you become unable to do so, and also to manage your affairs if you are deemed incompetent or disabled. A will appoints a personal representative to fulfill your last desires and intentions including the giving and devise of your property.

For families with minor children, a comprehensive estate plan will include guardianship planning to care for minor children in the event both parents are deceased. Without a properly drafted plan, a court will have to choose who has custody and control of your minor children if the unthinkable happens.

Finally, the development and implementation of a highly structured estate plan may ease the transition of assets to the next generation in a tax-efficient manner. Attorney Mucci listens to clients and provides them with individualized attention to craft an estate plan to satisfy their goals and objectives.
