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 Plano estate planning attorney 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.

Satisfied Clients Tell Their Stories

  • "Thank you and God Bless you"

    Thank you for being my Living Trust and other Estate documents attorney. Due to our move and storage of business and personal documents, we had trouble locating & we took a lot longer to respond to your drafts, etc. You were very patient with me and my needing lots of explaining of legal terms and meanings. At my age, I was concerned about getting things done but wanting it all done right. You were very prompt in responding to my questions and I think by time of signing I felt confident we had things just the way we wanted to protect my heirs. Thank you and God Bless you.

  • "Smooth and easy"
    Learning about trusts at the meal was easy and educational. The set down at the office was where the finer points of trusts was explained. That is where and when we decided to make it safe and easy for our heirs. Our final meeting where we signed everything and an explanation of each item was given went smooth and easy. All in all I would say the investment in the trust was worth it.
    Thank you to Crain & Wooley office and staff

    We went to seminar to just find out what we needed to do for a will, They gave us all the info we needed right then there. Offered a really good price if we signed up to get one that day. A few weeks later after our appointment we have a Living trust. They were helpful with all our questions and were very thorough with these explaining the whole process. They stuck with the price that we paid + let us call anytime if we had any questions. Excellent, Highly recommend this company.
