I am a lawyer to support a farming habit. I deal with rual clients who have a connection to ag, whether that is active farm operation, property ownership, or just living in rural Iowa. I also represent Chapter 7 Bankruptcy clients, draft and probate wills, and handle real estate transactions. Further, my office prepares tax returns for small buisneses and personal tax returns.
"Estate" is the legal term used to define your property and money—basically, everything that belongs to you. Estate planning attorneys tell you different strategies you can use to transfer your belongings after you die. By planning your estate, you can maximize its value by minimizing taxes and eliminating court costs and interference. Estate planning attorneys also help you control and protect your estate during your lifetime, by writing documents that allow you to transfer property and money to children, charities, or others in a way you desire.
