You should choose me as your estate planning attorney because of my background and my experience. Not only as a lawyer, but in life. I know what your concerns are and I understand how to implement a plan that will meet your needs. I teach other lawyers how to do this. In fact many lawyers hire me to do their estate planning. I'm Jeff Matsen and I'm the founding and managing partner of Wealth Strategies Council. We help people preserve, protect and transfer their legacy to the next generation in the most cost saving and efficient manner possible.What Is An Attorney's Role In A Real Estate Sale?
If you're selling real property, you should have a lawyer advise you because the buyer is entitled to a complete disclosure from you, with respect to the property. And if you don't provide those proper disclosures, the buyer can come back and sue you for misrepresentation, fraud, and failure to disclose. You need a lawyer to properly word and structure the disclosures, so that you're completely protected. If possible, it's good to have an as-if clause added in the contract. I'm Jeff Matsen and I'm the founding and managing partner of Wealth Strategies Counsel. We help people preserve, protect, and transfer their legacy to the next generation, in the most cost saving and efficient manner possible.What's The # 1 Mistake You See Businesses Making Today?
The number one mistake that I see businesses make today is that they don't realize the different alternatives that they have to grow their business and to save taxes and to preserve their employee relationship that they have with their key trusted employees.
