At Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP, in Hartford, Connecticut, we provide comprehensive and cost-effective estate plans aimed at addressing all of the needs of the client. After a free initial consultation, in which we sit down and thoroughly listen to what the client wants to accomplish, we develop an effective estate plan to accomplish all of the client's objectives within his or her budget.

At the heart of estate planning is the idea of asset protection and eventual transfer of those assets. Individuals and couples can plan ahead with assurance for how their assets will be managed during any period of incapacitation as well as after death. Through trusts, wills and business succession planning, our Hartford attorneys guide our clients in the most appropriate ways for them to protect assets and pass them on according to their values and wishes.

Asset Protection

Utilizing a variety of entities, contracts, and planning techniques, we can help clients protect their hard-earned assets, businesses, and property from creditors, spouses, and lawsuits. Customized asset protection strategies often involve corporate entities and irrevocable trusts to shelter assets.

Living Trusts

A living trust is a revocable trust agreement designed to avoid probate delay and expense. A living trust helps maintain protection of confidentiality of personal affairs and wishes, and ensures that those wishes will be carried out by trusted individuals.
