Estate Planning Guidance That Enriches Your Life Today - And Prepares For Your Loved Ones' Tomorrows

Many people avoid estate planning matters because they are intimidated by the complicated tax and financial issues, or they are dealing with common emotional end-of-life issues.

At Street & Ellis, P.A., we want you to call us and talk to us right away about your estate planning needs.

With more than 40 years of legal experience, our skilled lawyers can help you with any type of estate planning need you might have, including wills and trusts, financial planning, health care directives, powers of attorney and guardianships.

In addition to our legal experience, we also have personal experience with these matters. Both of our Dover estate planning and probate attorneys have worked through these issues with our own families and have established our own estate plans and financial plans.

Street & Ellis, P.A. In Delaware — A Holistic Approach To Your Estate Plan That Means More Than Documents

We have been specifically trained to understand, review and advise for your insurance program (long-term care in particular), your financial plan (including annuity planning) and your funeral arrangements (including prepaid and funeral trusts).

To give you comfort about your future, and the futures of loved ones, we are:

  • Thorough: We make sure to cover every aspect of your estate plan and related issues.
  • Lifelong: As your circumstances change throughout your life, so will your estate planning needs. We provide estate planning services throughout our clients' lives.
  • Counseling: Through trusts and other instruments, parents can use their estate planning and counseling tools for their children and other beneficiaries. Conversely, as parents grow older, their children often step in and provide a great deal of counseling for their parents, so this counseling works both ways.

Many law firms give out binders to their clients at the end of their estate planning sessions. At Street & Ellis, P.A., we take it a step further. We incorporate your family's entire financial team into your estate planning — including your advisers and the agents who will be helping you and your spouse with all the issues that happen with aging and administering your estate plan — and we make sure that they understand what is expected of them, as well.

We help you grasp every aspect of your estate planning decisions in language you understand.

Estate planning isn't just for the very wealthy and isn't only about saving money. It also saves time and avoids frustrations for you, your spouse and family, now and upon death. Estate and gift tax laws are complicated and we can help you understand how to avoid unnecessary taxes.
