About Attorney Marco A. Schiavo

In guiding his clients after the loss of a loved one, Marco has personally witnessed the unfortunate impact that the lack of an estate plan can have on families.  These experiences continually reaffirm his strong belief in the countless benefits of a well-drafted and well-implemented trust-based estate plan.  A proper estate plan provides for a smooth transition of control in the event of a person’s disability and provides privacy and ease of property distribution at death by avoiding the costs and delay of the probate court. Marco’s primary focus is assisting his clients in preserving the wealth that they have accumulated so that they may pass it on to their loved ones through the use of creditor protection trusts, estate tax minimization techniques, business succession planning and Medicaid/long term care planning.  Marco handles all levels of estate planning ranging from basic plans to complex multi-million dollar estates involving marital deduction trust planning, irrevocable life insurance trusts, stretch IRA inheritance trusts, multi-generational dynasty trusts, gifting strategies, charitable remainder trusts, special needs trusts and a number of other advanced trust planning vehicles.
