Most people, upon death, want to pass their assets to their beneficiaries in the most efficient manner possible. No one wants to create or encourage a family dispute. Yet, many people have difficulty following through on these intentions. At Garvey Schubert Barer, we make it easier for our clients to do this. We help our clients gather information, understand issues and make decisions. We explain the benefits of estate planning clearly so our clients can focus on the positive, proactive aspects of it.
We enjoy long-term relationships with our clients, which is important because an estate plan should be updated periodically to accommodate changes in the client's life and goals and to keep pace with changes in state and federal tax laws. Therefore, we value team members who bring a client service attitude and exceptional communication skills.
All resumes must be submitted with a law school transcript and a writing sample to be considered.
