The transfer of assets to family members, or other beneficiaries, at death has become increasingly complex. Likewise, lifetime gifts have estate and gift tax consequences. Even the appointment of someone to step in and handle financial matters in the event of incapacity should involve an overall legal analysis of your needs. Also, effectively expressing your wishes as to end of life and other medical care through a "living will" should be addressed in estate planning.
