Estate Planning And Wills For Physicians
How Can An Attorney Help Me Protect My Assets?
Gainesville estate and will planning attorney Ellen Gershow, of Dell Graham, talks about her experience working with physicians, and how she can help them plan for the future. She is a confident, knowledgeable attorney who knows the ins and outs of estate planning law, and has worked with many doctors in securing their assets.
“Planning a physician’s estate, there’s often competing interest of asset protection, protection against liability versus planning for death. For married physicians, that’s become an awfully lot easier with the advent of portability, because now we don’t have to be as concerned about dividing up assets to make sure that whoever dies first will be able to use his or her estate exemption. So we’ve got a lot more flexibility than we used to have in terms of planning so that we can continue to own assets as tenants by the entireties, have significant assets in the spouse’s estate to try to protect in the event of a malpractice action.”
