In the area of trusts, estate planning, and probate, Attorney Hartzheim’s experience includes preparation of wills, marital agreements, revocable living trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts, charitable remainder trusts, grantor retained annuity trusts, generation-skipping trusts, family limited partnerships, and other estate planning documents used both to avoid probate and minimize Federal death tax.
