You have spent your life getting to where you are today. Now is the time to protect what you have and ensure that your children and grandchildren are well taken care of in the future. Without proper planning, estate taxes could significantly reduce the estate you leave to your loved ones. We can help you preserve your assets. We can also devise strategies to protect assets from other perils.

At Strulowitz Law Firm LLC, we work closely with our clients to design a plan that is focused on meeting their individual needs. We gather information about family, finances and personal objectives, and then explain what options are available. We can assist you with all of your estate planning needs, including:
