Estate Planning & Probate Services
There are numerous types of trusts, but the one about which clients most commonly inquire is the revocable trust.
Planning addresses a broad range of scenarios that can impact a person's care and his or her assets both during life and after death.
The desire to protect assets often extends beyond concerns related to taxes. At times, the objective is to protect assets for one's own benefit.
Our tax planning services focus primarily on the effective use of our clients' estate and gift tax exemptions, and strategies to transfer assets.
Charitable giving in the context of estate and gift tax planning takes many forms, and as with most tax planning, ranges from simple, outright gifts and bequests...
Partnerships...We also assist in creating Corporations and Limited Liability Companies for traditional income tax and liability protection purposes.
Marty Snyder is a true professional. He has been our attorney for several years and we have found him to be extremely honest and trustworthy. He is our trusted advisor and we are grateful for his experience and expertise.
When I retired and moved back to Maryland, we wanted to find a lawyer in the area to update our wills and handle our estate. My wife and I were referred to Marty Snyder who came highly recommended to us. He is very knowledgeable and we have been pleased with his legal counsel in all of our matters.
We have used Marty for over six years as our family lawyer. He came highly recommended to us when we needed a lawyer to prepare a will after the birth of our first child. Marty is extremely knowledgeable in his field and immediately put us at ease. He is always prompt, courteous and respectful. Marty asked us questions to determine which type of Will, Trust and Power of Attorney was necessary for us and our growing family. We continue to rely on Marty for any legal issues we have and our trust our family's future with him.
I recently hired Mr. Snyder to create my first will. Being completely unfamiliar with wills and trusts, I was a bit intimidated by what seemed to be a complex process, so I relied heavily on his expertise to complete this important part of my estate planning. Mr. Snyder was a perfect choice for my situation. At our initial meeting, we discussed my intentions, and he was extremely helpful in explaining the best strategies for achieving my goals, and the legal issues to consider with each option. Mr. Snyder is thoroughly experienced, knowledgeable and has great communication skills. My will was completed quickly and for a very reasonable fee. I highly recommend him for this service.
