Backes & Backes meets the estate planning needs of our clients by coupling modern estate planning techniques with the traditional, client-focused atmosphere of small law firm.
Most decedents in New Jersey and Pennsylvania pass with no Will at all. For many clients, a "simple" plan is all that is required -- costing less than $1,000 for a typical married couple. You can begin your estate plan right now, using the firm's Estate Planning Worksheet. No financial information is requested, and your submission will be sent directly to our attorneys for review. An attorney will then contact you to discuss how to best meet your needs and wishes. There is no fee if you choose not to engage the firm after discussing your plan.
Many clients benefit from a more sophisticated estate plan, for a host of reasons. Our attorneys can help you evaluate the benefits of a general living trust, a special needs trust, or the many strategies that may benefit higher-asset estates.
In this constantly evolving field, the firm's attorneys work diligently with clients and their advisers to help them prepare wills and trusts and to ensure that planning is prudent, financially and personally.
