Estate Planning

Smith Bain Manuel & Horvath location

We regularly represent individuals and families in Virginia regarding the preservation, management, and transfer of wealth. We pride ourselves in designing and implementing comprehensive estate plans for our clients that are tailored to fit our clients’ particular circumstances and goals. With goals ranging from providing for a family’s future, caring for beloved pets, or funding philanthropic causes, our services provide comfort to our clients, ensuring their estate plan addresses their expressed concerns. As a part of our estate planning services, we also consider the impact of federal income, estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer taxes on the transmission of wealth and implement strategies to minimize the effect of such transfer taxes. Additionally, our estate planning services provide for possible circumstances of incapacity or medical urgencies, providing direction during a potentially stressful event in a client’s lifetime.
