Crafting estate plans to preserve your assets and your legacy
Our Services

Wills & Trusts

MacDonald Illig's Trusts and Estates Group provides sophisticated estate planning and drafting services for all sizes, types, and complexities of estates.  We carefully consider our clients' goals and family situations in light of numerous factors, including: 1) income, estate, gift, generation-skipping transfer, and other tax consequences; 2) charitable intentions; 3) life insurance; 4) retirement and employee benefits developments; 5) property tax implications; and 6) the potential need for long-term nursing or custodial care.  We are adept at developing a personalized plan for each client using documents such as wills, revocable trusts, and irrevocable trusts.
