Estate Planning Practice Areas

Probate and Estate Planning: The importance of a well drafted estate plan cannot be understated. Not only does this process establish how and to who your assets will go after you pass, it also involves important decisions about your future care. Establish trusts so your family will not have to go through the expensive and time consuming probate process. Establish powers of attorney that give people you trust the right to make decisions for you should you become incapacitated. All of this can be accomplished while estate planning.

Special Needs Planning: If you have a loved one with a disability, you won’t want to jeopardize their receipt of government benefits by leaving them an outright inheritance. Special needs planning will allow you to set up safeguards such as a special needs trust. This type of trust will allow you to leave assets to your disabled loved one without having to risk the loss of their much needed government benefits.

Tax Preparation: Everyone dreads preparing their taxes and very few people have detailed knowledge about maximizing tax credits and deductions in order to save the most money. Attorney Hansen handles every type of tax return and can even handle out of state returns or if you have made money out of state.

Federal Tax Controversy: Have you been subject to an audit request or need to file a tax appeal with the IRS? Neither of these things have to be overwhelming and lengthy processes. Attorney Hansen will help you get through the audit and appeal process by troubleshooting any tax issues you may be having and working to provide simple and effective solutions.

Medicaid Planning: Few systems are as complicated as Medicaid. That being said, Medicaid provides valuable benefits to those who need nursing home care. Don’t give up on being Medicaid eligible. Nursing home care is costly and can quickly deplete any assets you have. With Medicaid planning, you can work to ensure your receipt and continued receipt of Medicaid benefits without risking the loss of your assets.

Asset Protection: Plan to safeguard the financial future for yourself and your children with an asset protection plan. With this in place, your assets will be safeguarded from your creditors and the potential creditors of your children. Discuss your asset protection options and get peace of mind for a secure financial future.
