Estate, Gift and Income Tax Planning Lawyer Assists Clients in Florida

Clearwater attorney works to protect your wealth

If your estate is large enough to trigger the federal estate tax, J. Marvin Guthrie Attorney at Law can help you reduce your exposure through prudent planning, including business succession plans and wealth transfers to your eventual heirs.

I assist clients by structuring business transactions, planning their charitable giving, and advising on income and estate tax matters. I work to minimize the impact of income taxes, gift taxes, estate taxes and generation-skipping transfer taxes on clients and their heirs. Through the strategic use of cutting-edge and traditional income- and asset-transfer devices, I will help you take full advantage of all applicable tax credits, deductions, exemptions and elections, so you can transfer your wealth with maximum benefit for your business, your family and your philanthropic beneficiaries.
