McKinnon Patten & Associates LLC Estate Planning

In order to minimize the legal fees your estate will have to pay and achieve the greatest tax savings for your beneficiaries, you must have an estate plan. Regardless of your station in life, you should have a comprehensive estate plan that matches your goals and priorities and preserves and protects your assets in the event you are incapacitated or die.
