Trust and Estates Law Services | DeWitt LLP

Our attorneys offer a variety of estate planning support in Green Bay, Madison, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis.

Successful estate planning attorneys have a keen appreciation of family dynamics, technical legal experience, and sensitivity to the often-difficult topic of mortality. Estate planning isn’t just important for high-net-worth individuals—it is important for everyone. Whether you are an individual seeking to provide for your family, establish a business succession plan, create a trust for your descendants or other beneficiaries, appoint a guardian in the event of your death, or establish powers of attorney for your finances and health care, having a clear estate plan now, more than ever, is vitally important.

As one of the most experienced law firms in Wisconsin, with an additional presence in Minneapolis, we can help you plan for the unexpected, preserve your wealth, minimize taxes, assure business succession, and protect your and your family’s interests for current and future generations.

Recent changes in state and federal income, gift and estate tax laws must be considered for future and existing estate plans. Our attorneys will tailor your estate plan to implement your unique goals so that you may have the peace of mind which comes with thorough, informed planning.
