Nationally recognized skill in helping you address your estate planning needs

Frazer Ryan is a 2018 Best Law Firms selectee for Trusts & Estate Law (Metro Tier 1) and Ranking Arizona's second-ranked Trust/Estate firm for 2018

Every adult needs an estate plan of some type, whether their assets are modest or are extensive and complex. Our estate planning lawyers can lead you through the process of identifying your planning objectives, making specific decisions about the details of your plan, and creating a plan that will meet your needs and give you the peace of mind of knowing that your affairs are in order.

We will develop and administer these documents for you, whether the plan is as simple as a will, living will, health care power of attorney and financial power of attorney, or a sophisticated estate tax minimization and asset protection structure.

With a number of our partners having been certified as specialists in Estate and Trust Law by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization, we have exceptional resources in helping you determine and address your estate and trust planning needs. Should you require legal assistance in probate, guardianship or conservatorship proceedings, our attorneys can help in those areas as well.

Depending on the size and nature of your estate, your estate plan may need one or more of the following:

  • revocable or irrevocable trust,

  • family limited partnership,

  • charitable remainder trust,

  • charitable lead trust,

  • special needs trust,

  • layered grantor retained annuity or unitrust,

  • intentionally defective grantor trust (IDGT),

  • private family foundation,

  • structured college savings plans,

  • Qualified Personal Resident Trust (QPRT), or

  • other important estate planning tools unique to your needs.

Our Phoenix lawyers will help you develop an estate and trust administration plan to express your wishes regarding your person and your property, and they will help assure that those wishes are honored by assisting, as necessary, in the administration and enforcement of your plan.
