Estate planning team

Depending on the complexity of your estate plan, you may want to establish an estate planning team.


The attorney should be one who specializes in estate planning. It will be the attorney's role to draft legal documents such as wills and trusts and provide legal advice.


The accountant knows the most about the estate owner's financial affairs. The accountant can foresee and discuss the tax consequences of a suggested estate plan.

Insurance agent

The insurance agent provides guidance into the estate plan and how much and what type of insurance should be considered to meet the estate owner's estate liquidity and survivor income needs.

Trust officer

The trustee's duties include conserving and managing estate assets. The trust officer helps set up and maintain trust arrangements according to a trust document prepared by the attorney.
