Estate Planning


If you have a well-drafted estate plan in place, you'll ensure that your estate passes to whom you want, when you want, and is carried out in the manner you've chosen. You can rest assured that your family won't have to endure the public process and costly matter of probate. The government won't be able to take what you've spent a lifetime building. But you need to be aware of the many options that exist in estate planning - and you must choose your attorney wisely.

Our Specialty

Our clients vary from those with no taxable estates to those having assets in excess of $20 million.

Arthur Bowen is a trustee of trusts having aggregate assets in excess of $30 million, an officer of personal holding companies and a director of a number of charitable institutions and family foundations.
