Estate Planning



At Dunn & Miller, PC we recognize that each client presents a unique set of circumstances, facts, and objectives to be considered when drafting an estate plan.  The most basic estate plan consists of a simple Will.   However, the needs and objectives of many clients extend beyond the simple Will and include, in addition to a Will, a Revocable Trust, Durable Power of Attorney, and a Living Will.  Other estate planning is available including Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts (ILITs) and other advanced estate planning. 


We carefully prepare and review each estate plan specifically to meet the needs and objectives of the client while striving for practical estate planning. 


General Objectives:


1.      avoid Probate;

2.      maximize family privacy;

3.      plan for incapacity and health care decisions;

4.   clarify goals of distribution to minimize the risk of will and/or trust contests during estate/trust administration;

5.      set forth procedure for estate/trust administration; 

6.      accurately implement estate/trust settlement to minimize liability to Personal Representative and Trustee; and

7.      minimize the total tax liability of the estate/trust. 



Please contact our office at (314)786-1200 to schedule an appointment to discuss your potential estate planning needs.
