Breanna L. Young

Breanna is an estate planning attorney with over 10 years of experience assisting farmers, individuals, families, and small businesses with planning for the future.

Estate Planning

Individuals with modest to vast estates, including large family farms, rely on Breanna’s guidance as they develop succession plans, including complex estate planning documents, sell assets to trusts, establish businesses (entity formations and buy-sell agreements), and otherwise optimize their estate planning.

Breanna has assisted clients with premarital agreements, charitable giving planning, grantor trusts, GRATs, charitable trusts, QTIP trusts, and limited-liability companies, among other vehicles.

She also represents fiduciaries in administering estates, trusts, guardianships, and conservatorships.

Breanna is a compassionate and understanding advocate, advising same-sex couples and gender nonconforming individuals in their estate planning, organizing and planning for succession of businesses, and tax planning. For transgender individuals, she guides clients through legal name changes, and the resulting changes needed on governmental documents, including birth certificates and Social Security cards.


Breanna prepares annual income tax returns for her individual and business clients. She also helps them understand the tax implications of potential business strategies, contracts, and entity choice. Breanna frequently collaborates with clients’ CPAs and financial advisors to formulate and implement tax planning strategies.
