We Can Explain All of Your Estate Planning Options
Our legal team is equipped with the extensive resources that you need on your side to make sure your valuable property and assets are passed on to their rightful beneficiaries. We can also safeguard your estate with the right legal tools to carry out your wishes in case you ever become incapacitated.
Our seasoned estate planning attorneys in Plano can assist you with the following:
- Wills: A will is a signed document that states your wishes regarding the disbursement of your assets. With a will, you can establish basic guidelines for asset distribution that can eliminate costly disputes among your heirs.
- Trusts: Including trusts in your estate plan can greatly simplify the administration process and help your loved ones avoid the hassle of probate. There are different types of trusts you can use that can be customized to meet your unique estate planning goals. The most common are revocable living trusts, irrevocable living trusts, and supplemental needs trusts. We can help you determine which type of trust you need to ensure your beneficiaries inherit what you leave behind.
- Probate: We know firsthand that the probate process contains many variables. Our experienced legal professionals can guide you through each phase of the probate process if you have been named as an executor of a will or administrator of an estate. Although the legal responsibilities and liability might feel overwhelming, we can provide the practical advice you need to feel confident your best interests are represented.
- Adult Guardianship: An adult guardianship hearing is usually necessary when a person with a permanent mental or physical disability is not capable of making decisions for themselves. Our lawyers can help proactively complete guardianship planning documents or reactively file an Application for Appointment of Permanent Guardian with the court.
- Disability Planning: Are you worried about who will make important decisions on your behalf if you are ever incapacitated or unable to speak for yourself. We can address your concerns and help you draft a durable power of attorney, medical power of attorney, declaration of guardian in advance, and more.
- Asset Protection: Our skilled Plano estate planning attorneys can help you strategically insulate your hard-earned assets to prevent costly lawsuits and devastating losses. We can protect your personal and business assets from liability arising from misconduct, professional malpractice liability, personal injury resulting from a car accident, and more.
- Existing Estate Plan Review & Update: It’s important to periodically review your estate plan to make sure it conforms to all current laws that might impact your unique planning goals. We offer comprehensive review and update services to assist clients with existing estate plans. Speak to us today if any major life events have occurred that require you to change the beneficiaries named in your will and trusts.
