Farm And Family Business Succession Planning

Helping Families Protect What is Valuable To Them

Decisions about how to effectively pass on a family business or farm to children and grandchildren involve many complex and difficult issues. Our attorneys can help you create a plan now in order to avoid and/or minimize death and capital gains taxes so that the legacy you've worked hard to build is passed on to future generations.

For more than 20 years, the lawyers at the Evansville law firm of Stone & Stratman, LLP, have worked with many farm families and small-business owners to develop creative estate and succession plans that our clients can understand and modify if needed.

Family, Children's And Special Needs Trusts

Parents need effective estate plans to provide for their young children in the event of a parent's untimely death. Grandparents often want to ensure that sufficient funds are available for their grandchildren's education and medical expenses. Parents of children with special needs often have questions about how to best protect their child when the parents are no longer around to care for him or her. Merely hoping to avoid these potentially life-changing events is not a wise or effective strategy. Our attorneys can help you understand the issues and develop a comprehensive plan that meets your needs and goals.

Planning For Individuals And Couples, Married And Unmarried

Our attorneys have been assisting individuals and both married and unmarried couples for many years. Recent changes to Indiana laws pertaining to same-sex marriage provide never-before-seen opportunities. We can help you create an estate plan that takes advantage of these opportunities and protect those you love.
