Preserving your family's wealth for future generations
Whether you're planning the parameters of your future medical care or establishing support for loved ones upon your death, estate planning attorney Harold G. Ayer can help with all aspects of trusts and estates issues, including:
-Estate tax issues
-Choosing the appropriate executor
Securing your legacy:
You work hard for your family, so knowing that you have planned for their long-term well-being and financial security can bring you comfort. Harold thoroughly analyzes your estate and strategizes the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, caring for your pets, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones.
Appointment of guardianship:
If you have minor children, your will allows you to make decisions about their future care. This is especially crucial if you are a single parent or if both parents die in a common incident. If you do not name a guardian, the court appoints a guardian for your children and can make decisions adverse to your ultimate parenting goals. You can also make arrangements for your pets' care in your will, including naming a guardian to take responsibility for your pets.

Business and personal philosophy:
I have always maintained it is better to provide quality individualized service to my established clientele rather than strive only for quantity in customer base. It would go against my personal ethics to not spend the hours of research, thoughtful consideration and physical effort it takes to customize and design the best, most beneficial legal package for every person who depends upon me to serve in their best interest. There is no such thing as boilerplate in my practice. This means I take seriously my role as fiduciary in representing a client and/or their family. In my opinion, the association between attorney and client is meant to be a life-long relationship. I make sure I keep abreast of laws, regulations and public policy as they adjust to the present and impact the future. I believe I can say with confidence I have earned my reputation among peers, clients, friends and family as fair and honest and a person they can depend upon and trust.
