Jennifer Jaynes believes the estate-planning process is deeply personal, and she works hand in hand with each client to ensure their plan is comprehensive, specific to their needs, and understandable to them and their appointed fiduciaries. She provides individuals with the advice and tools they need to make the best and most informed decisions for themselves and their families.

Estate 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.
