Experienced Utah Estate Planning Lawyers

When a client's assets are substantial or include a closely held business, estate planning becomes even more important. Tax issues, including the proper valuation of assets and minimization of inheritance taxes, require in-depth knowledge of tax law and finance.

In the case of a family owned business, providing for an orderly change of ownership allows continuity of operations and retention of the business's value. With our extensive experience in matters of business organization and law, and banking and financial issues, the attorneys at Robinson, Seiler & Anderson can protect the value of the business by providing that orderly transition.

When a family member is disabled or has special medical needs, wise estate planning can provide a vehicle for allowing the family member to continue living a comfortable and worthwhile life. We can establish special needs trusts and make other provisions to ensure that these special needs are met.
