The majority of Magellan Legal's clients are affluent retirees whose concerns include having their legal affairs and documents in order and avoiding or reducing estate taxes, income taxes, and capital gains taxes. Recent years have also seen an increase in a desire to protect assets from frivolous lawsuits and to maintain the privacy of family affairs.
Estate planning begins with a conversation about your goals and desires for your family. With this knowledge, we will discuss your options and outline the benefits and drawbacks to both a will-based plan and a trust-based plan, and help you determine which is right for your family and situation.
Magellan Legal’s probate services can take a sometimes-onerous task off your plate. The complexity and length of the probate process is determined by the county of domicile, the assets of the estate and the number of heirs at law. Family dynamics and conflict can further lengthen and complicate the process. The attorneys at Magellan Legal can partner with you to make this process as easy for you as possible.
Magellan Legal's primary goal is to keep your overall plan objectives in our sights as we work to best coordinate all the separate pieces of your legal, financial and tax affairs so that you achieve harmony in your life. To accomplish this, the Atlanta attorneys of Magellan Legal have partnered with financial advisors, Certified Financial Planners™ and accountants to offer the most comprehensive planning available.
