Estate Planning and Probate

Indianapolis Estate Planning and Probate Lawyers

At Cohen Garelick & Glazier in Indianapolis, Indiana, we provide comprehensive representation in matters related to estate planning, estate administration and probate. Our Indianapolis estate planning attorneys are dedicated to working with clients to develop estate plans that transfer the greatest percentage of available assets with the lowest tax and administrative costs.

Indiana Estate Attorneys

A comprehensive estate plan involves more than asset protection, designating an estate administrator, and passing property to heirs. Our skilled Indianapolis estate planning attorneys help people develop estate plans that safeguard them while they are alive and protect their legacy when they pass on. We can prepare a wide range of client-specific documents when developing estate plans such as:

  • Simple wills, complex wills, and pour over wills
  • Trusts, including irrevocable trusts, living trusts, special needs trusts, and charitable remainder trusts
  • Business succession planning
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills
  • Advance health care directives
  • Health care proxies
  • High net worth estate planning

Many of our estate planning clients include physicians, dentists and other health care professionals.

Estate Administration

In addition to handling estate planning, we assist personal representatives and executors dealing with estate administration matters. We also have significant experience handling intestate estate matters and litigation related to will and trust contests and challenges.

Once the estate documents are drafted, we will maintain the original will and trust documents for safekeeping so that they will be promptly available to our clients or their families. We provide this service free of charge for our clients.

Central Indiana Guardianships Lawyers

In addition to estate planning, our firm has significant experience handling guardianship matters. We have handled guardianship matters involving minor children as part of estate plans, as well as for adults with mental or physical disabilities. Whether a guardianship is contested or uncontested, we work hard to protect the interests of family members seeking a guardianship as well as those they are trying to protect.

Our Indianapolis Estate Planning Attorneys

While we draw on all the resources of the firm to create and administer estate plans, we have several attorneys who concentrate on these matters. Additionally, our attorneys also handle probate and guardianship matters.
