Estate Planning

“You can’t plan for your death after you die”

Leighton is a Chandler estate planning attorney with years of experience who knows that no two estates are identical. He’ll provide you with solutions that work the way you want, preparing for any situation that may arise and helping you avoid unintended consequences.

Prenup And Post Nuptial Agreements

A postnuptial agreement is a legally binding agreement between spouses entered into after marriage. It differs from a premarital agreement in that the agreement is made after marriage. And unlike a premarital agreement, a postnuptial agreement can bind the spouses regarding other issues that a prenuptial agreement cannot.

Wealth Preservation

It can take generations or many breakthroughs to build wealth.

Putting defenses and investments in place to protect and preserve your wealth isn’t only smart thinking, it’s an imperative action to take.

We know estate planning, and we know business and entrepreneurship. Let us help you preserve your money and assets, for your future self and future generations.

Business & Succession Planning

Much like wealth preservation and estate planning, business succession planning is the legal process of deciding who takes over your
possessions — and in this case business(es) — when you retire or when something unexpected happens.

This is an especially relevant process for SMBs or family business owners that want to ensure their businesses will continue to run smoothly.

Our business succession planning lawyers can help.

Tax Planning

Death and taxes are the only sure things in life. While tax planning is not beneficial to the vast majority of Americans, if you are a business owner, high earner, or super saver tax planning may save you thousands or even millions of dollars. The tax code is incredibly complex; including all the regulations, statutes, and case law the code runs over 70,000 pages. It’s so complex that no one person truly understands it all.
