Estate Tax Planning
With a background in family law, trusts and estates law, and taxation, Jennifer Jaynes brings an unusual package of expertise and an unparalleled thoroughness to estate planning. Employing a flat-fee structure to the estate-planning process lets Jaynes spend as much time as necessary with each client, explaining often-complicated concepts in plain and clear language (even pictures!). This investment of both time and caring in each plan makes Jaynes a trusted adviser and key resource to her clients during the estate-planning process and, later, to their heirs and appointed fiduciaries.
Wealth Preservation & Tax Minimization
In addition to a law degree, Jennifer Jaynes holds a legal master’s degree (LLM) in taxation, focusing on estate and gift tax. This allows her to include a thorough strategy to minimize or eliminate estate taxes and protect assets in every plan she creates. From choosing between a will and a living trust to employing key strategies and advanced estate-planning tools to minimize estate taxes, Jaynes helps clients maximize wealth for both themselves and their beneficiaries.
Probate & Trust Administration
An estate trustee/executor is often a loved one or friend with little legal knowledge or expertise. Jennifer Jaynes serves as their adviser, ensuring they can comfortably and properly perform their required duties and fiduciary responsibilities during a difficult time. Unlike some estate-planning attorneys, Jaynes will defend the executors/trustees in court, if necessary, ensuring clients’ wishes are followed and their appointed fiduciaries are protected.
