Estate Planning

Wills, Trusts & Estate Planning

The Law Offices of Katharine J. Richards, P.C. handles all aspects of estate and tax planning, from the very simple, to the most complex. With a tremendous working knowledge of the interplay of estate planning, tax laws, Medicaid and estate administration rules, we are able to assist you in developing a long term plan to protect you, your family and your assets as seamlessly as possible.

We listen to our clients’ concerns and, working with our clients’ goals in mind, we most often draft Last Wills and Testaments, Revocable and/or Irrevocable Living Trusts, as well as Durable General Powers of Attorney, Medical Proxies and Living Wills. For some, these plans also include deed or co-op transfers and the formation of LLCs or other business entities.  We believe that it is our job to listen and advise; not to override our clients’ free will and choice. We prefer to educate our clients and assist them in developing the best plan for them and their families, as opposed to selling a cookie-cutter, pre-made “insert name here” type of plan that is unfortunately so common these days.
