Strategic Estate Planning
Can Achieve Your Objectives
Protecting Your Legacy With A Tailored Estate Plan
Much like designing a retirement strategy, it is never too early to begin developing your estate plan. When you give yourself ample time to examine your current circumstances and determine your long-term objectives, you can identify the options that best serve your needs and minimize the potential for conflict.
At Gadzo Law, P.C., we take a deliberate, hands-on approach to estate planning because we recognize that there are many factors that affluent professionals need to consider before drafting these documents. Our attorneys, Alexandra Gadzo and Robyn Zorea, are eminently qualified to assist you with any estate planning concern. Both hold advanced legal degrees in Tax Law. With their LL.M. degrees in Taxation, Alexandra and Robyn are able to determine which legal options will help you reduce your tax liabilities.
In addition, Alexandra is a board-certified specialist in estate planning, trust and probate law. She is one of the few lawyers in Silicon Valley who has earned this designation. Our team uses their expansive knowledge of these practice areas to help you limit the impact estate taxes have on the value of the assets that your loved ones will inherit.
