Business planning, tax planning, and estate planning are disciplines with enormous breadth that touches every business owner and family whether the business, estate or family is large or small.
The best way to take care of one’s business is:
- to be proactive
- to plan
- to strategize
- to implement revenue generating and tax minimization strategies
- to seek wise counsel
The best way to take care of one’s family during life and after death is to put a proper estate plan in place.
- Proper planning puts decision making in the hands of the client and takes control away from the courts.
- Proactive planning allows business owners and families that are fully capable of managing their own affairs to make meaningful decisions for their lives.
- Protective planning frees up valuable and scarce judicial resources that should be reserved for people who simply cannot afford to plan.
The Hyndman Group is a scalable law business that is sought after because of its uniqueness in the industry, closeness with its clientele, and deep community respect and admiration.Michele Hyndman, Esq.
