Details

As chair of the firm’s estate planning and probate group, Laura Hoexter’s practice focuses on wills, trusts and estates. She works with individuals to help them establish foundational documents, such as tax-saving wills and living trusts, financial and health care powers of attorney, and health care directives. She addresses complex issues that may arise, including non-citizen status, retirement benefit planning and life insurance arrangements. Laura has significant experience helping clients meet their more advanced estate planning goals, including the formation of charitable trusts and private foundations, as well as all types of irrevocable trusts such as life insurance trusts, special needs trusts, and qualified personal residence trusts. One of Laura’s favorite projects is helping people achieve the dream of owning a business. She assists clients with the formation of limited liability companies, partnerships, S-corporations, and other suitable entities. Then she ensures those entities run efficiently by providing comprehensive operating agreements, and arranges for appropriate exit strategies to ensure a smooth succession to the next generation of owners. When a loved one passes away, families are faced with many issues at a difficult time. Laura works with the personal representatives (executors) to alleviate the burdens faced by the survivors in order to achieve a smooth administration of the estate. She provides a detailed overview of the probate process, prepares the paperwork necessary to probate an estate, and simplifies the difficult financial decisions involved.
