Representing Clients Across The North Shore And Beyond In Estate Planning Matters

A skillfully implemented estate plan will protect your assets, ensure they are distributed according to your wishes, and provide direction to your loved ones if you become incapacitated. In short, an estate plan provides both tangible and intangible benefits to you and your loved ones.

At Stern, Keilty & Wall, LLC, in Salem, our estate planning attorneys can help you devise a plan that fully meets both your current needs and future goals. When you enlist our services, you can be assured we will consider all available planning instruments and strategies.

Developing Asset Protection Strategies Carefully Tailored to Your Needs

Serving clients across the North Shore and Eastern Massachusetts, in towns and cities such as Salem, Beverly and Peabody, our asset protection attorneys represent clients from all walks of life. For example, we have substantive experience helping owners of family-owned companies or closely held companies with business planning.

We represent clients with multiple properties and significant assets who are concerned about estate tax implications, liability issues and succession planning. Yet we are equally adept at helping clients with relatively modest estates. When you engage our law firm, we will explore with you in-depth the unique issues involved in your family or business situation. We work with many clients who face the legal complexities that come with blended families and same-sex partnerships and marriages, making sure the result is an estate plan that avoids legal pitfalls and reflects the clients' wishes.

Through the use of wills, trusts and other tax-sensitive estate planning vehicles and strategies, we can help you conserve assets, and protect your family's financial interests and future.

Helping Families Prepare For The Possibility Of Incapacity

While asset protection is one function of an estate plan, preparation for incapacity is another critical function. Our lawyers can prepare the full range of documents, including durable powers of attorney, health care proxies, HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) releases and advance directives that will clarify and convey your wishes if you become incapacitated and are unable to make informed decisions about your health care or financial affairs.

At Stern, Keilty & Wall, LLC, we develop long-term relationships with our clients as we help them along the continuum of lifetime planning. As our clients face both the expected and unexpected, we provide counsel and support. Our lawyers combine comprehensive elder law, estate planning and probate administration services that straddle a range of crisis situation management, Medicaid planning and special needs planning situations.
