Estate planning

Estate Planning is an excellent method of protecting and preserving the assets and property you worked so hard to earn. Even with a small estate, there are many helpful documents you should have created by a legal professional. At Speeter & Johnson, our Minnesota Estate Planning Lawyers have experience helping clients protect estates of all sizes. This is an important step to take, not just to ensure your final wishes are followed after your death, but also to protect you if you ever are incapacitated and unable to handle your own financial affairs.

Speeter & Johnson

Our family firm has been helping clients in all areas of law practice since 1952, when it was founded by attorneys Robert L. Speeter and Vincent E. Johnson. Since then, many of our family members have followed in this profession to join our firm. We offer cost-efficient, customized legal services, including Estate Planning, to individuals, families and business owners. We understand that each client is unique, and we design professional legal solutions that protect client rights. In addition to Estate Planning legal services, we help clients in other areas of law practice including Family Law, Personal Injury, Criminal Defense and Corporate Law.

Minnesota Estate Planning Lawyers

In our work as Minnesota Estate Planning Lawyers, our firm offers comprehensive services to protect your assets and estate holdings. This is the best way to be sure your final wishes are followed. Some documents apply also to your financial well-being in case you are incapacitated. Without properly drawn and filed legal documents, your estate matters go to Probate Court, where a judge appoints strangers to administer your estate.

The types of documents we prepare for our Minnesota estate planning clients include:

  • Wills & Trusts – including living and revocable trusts
  • Medical Care Directive
  • Powers of Attorney – including revocable

Clients also benefit from our experience with taxation matters, trust and estate administration and commercial and residential real estate. We help you set up the distribution of assets to heirs of your choice, reduce the tax bite for heirs, and help you get peace of mind by creating health care directives for your care and estate management if you are incapacitated.

Having estate planning documents in place now is essential for all individuals, regardless of the size of their estate. When an estate is very large and complicated, estate planning is the best way to protect and preserve those assets for heirs and to help avoid family disputes.
