Estate Planning

Mr. Kaster designs and implements estate plans that provide peace of mind and reduce or eliminate taxes. When you hire Mr. Kaster to prepare your estate plan, you deal directly with him throughout the whole process, not a paralegal or secretary. He knows the questions to ask to make sure you put into place the right plan for you.

An estate plan commonly consists of four key documents: (1) a revocable living trust; (2) a “pour-over” will; (3) a durable power of attorney for property management; and (4) an advance health care directive. A revocable living trust has several key advantages, including keeping your estate out of probate and reducing or eliminating taxes. The trust, durable power of attorney and advance health care directive also provide the additional benefit of designating trusted individuals to manage your financial affairs and make medical decisions for you should you become incapacitated.
