An estate plan is one of the most important documents you will put together in your lifetime.

If you own a business of any kind, it’s probably one of your greatest assets. It also means your business needs a succession plan – and one that is consistent with your family’s estate plan. We specialize in guiding business owners through a plan that works for them and ensures peace of mind given any contingency.
At Bridge Law LLP, we understand that your most important assets are your loved ones. More than your financial wealth, your family is the most important, unique, personal, and valuable treasure you have.
Proper assessment and preparation for estate tax impacts that will follow the transfer of wealth after an individuals death is a very important aspect of estate planning. Adequate planning will minimize the estate tax burden and make sure your hard earned assets will pass to those you have striven to provide for.
If you are a family with young children, then your estate plan should begin with a foundation that ensures your children would always be taken care of no matter what happens. At Bridge Law LLP, we take nothing for granted when we plan for the care and custody of your young children since it is your single most important responsibility.
We work with each and every client to preserve this legacy by capturing their individual stories, pearls of wisdom, and advice for their loved ones. And we do this regularly. Clients have come to value this more than anything because we help ensure the legacy you’ve built is passed down to those you love.
Bridge Law LLP has helped numerous individuals plan for their overseas assets in order to be in compliance with U.S. tax rules. We also specialize in working with non-citizens in order to plan ways to ensure that their personal and business wealth is protected in the most tax-efficient manner possible. Not only do we tailor each and every document to carefully fit your specific needs for the future, we take careful consideration to keep your plans updated as the laws and your life needs change.
If you want to leave money or property to a loved one with a disability, you must plan carefully. Otherwise, you could jeopardize your loved one’s ability to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid benefits. By setting up a “special needs trust” in your will, you can avoid some of these problems.
When it comes to probate, it’s important to have an attorney who is well-versed inside the courtroom, who has experience with judges, and knows how to represent your interests. It’s hard enough when a loved one passes away, but to cope with such a tragedy and also deal with the nightmare of probate – without the right legal counsel – can be daunting.
Trust administration and litigation is a complicated area of law. Our trust administration attorneys have the experience and understanding to assist you whether you are the trustor, trustee, or beneficiary. At Bridge Law LLP, we specialize not only in ensuring that your trust works for your loved ones, but we also provide trust administration services to ensure that when it comes time to implement your trust, we are there for your family.
It’s a great question, and one that you should be asking if you are serious about doing estate planning. To understand how we’re different, you need to understand how “traditional” estate planning works.
