Stamford Estate Planning and Probate Lawyer

Experienced Estate Planning Lawyer Serving Clients in Stamford and Greenwich, Connecticut

Estate planning is about more than minimizing taxes and avoiding probate. Whereas these are important components, how you plan your estate is literally a reflection of what you value in life.

  • Do you want to ensure that your beneficiaries will receive your hard-earned assets in a manner specifically tax-efficient, cost-efficient and protected from lawsuits?
  • Do you have a business you want to pass along to family members?
  • Would you like to make sure a beloved charity or educational institution receives an endowment while you receive income for life?

Whatever your specific concern, you want to make sure the wealth you have spent a lifetime accumulating is protected from excessive taxation, personal liability and a long or costly probate.

I am Richard A. Sarner of Zeldes, Needle & Cooper, P.C., and I can help you. I tailor my approach to each client’s unique estate planning needs and goals.
