You provide the goals, and Troy will provide the legal skills and experience. Specifically, Troy works with you to create a plan that will avoid probate of your estate. Troy will craft your plan to minimize or eliminate taxes that would need to be paid after your death and to empower your loved ones to handle your affairs if, at some time in the future, you are not able to take care of them yourself.
