Your Investments, Your Family, the Future of Your Estate
Estate planning is important for everyone, even if the estate is likely to be small. Careful estate planning now can ensure that your investments are secured, that your property is properly distributed, and that your personal wishes are carried out. Creating a tailored estate plan also allows you to designate a power of attorney over your care and financial matters and make your health care wishes known, should you become incapacitated.
It also allows you to save as much as possible on taxes, court costs and attorneys' fees. Plus, your family will have an easier time coping with the administrative and financial aspects of handling an estate. At Sobel, Poss & Moore in Nashville, Tennessee, we are highly experienced in all aspects of estate planning. Our legal team will take the time to understand your individual interests and develop a strategic estate plan to meet your needs.
Proper estate planning can help to increase the size of an estate, whether large or small. Its basic purposes are to choose how property will be distributed after death, help assure that property will be distributed in an orderly and efficient way, and minimize tax liability. Most estates pass to beneficiaries free of federal estate tax. A spouse can leave an unlimited amount to a surviving spouse without having it be subject to federal estate tax.

- Simple wills
