Estate Planning

As unpleasant as the task is, estate planning is one of the necessities of life. Knowing your hard-earned assets will be dealt with in the manner you choose provides peace of mind.

For business owners, a plan for succession of ownership is essential. We can guide you through the process of providing for business continuity.

The executor and trustee of a will is required to perform a number of duties. At Philpott & Associates we are experienced in estate planning and can guarantee no deviation from the succession plan for your assets.
