Estate Planning and Administration

When it comes to drafting wills and trusts, the lawyers at Watkins & Eager are skilled at handling all aspects of the process. We structure our will drafting to take advantage of exclusions and deductions allowed under federal estate tax law and the creation of trusts. Our trust drafting capabilities span from grantor-retained annuity trusts, intentionally defective grantor trusts, qualified personal residence trusts and charitable remainder trusts to charitable lead trusts and many others.

You can also count on the Watkins & Eager Estate Planning and Administration group to provide services for family businesses, including succession planning and wealth transfer planning, the use of family-limited partnerships, family-limited liability companies and other family-owned and operated entities.

Our lawyers provide legal services on a regular basis in the development and implementation of estate and gift tax planning strategies. We act as counsel for the probate of wills and the administration of estates and trusts. We also provide legal services in connection with conservatorships and guardianships, regularly representing clients before chancellors in probate, estate administration, guardianship establishment/administration and conservatorship establishment/administration.
