Comprehensive Estate Plans
Our lawyers take the time to get to know your story and your goals so we can personalize your estate plan, including:
- A will – Every adult should have a will to declare their heirs and how their estate will be distributed upon death. Parents with minor children can also nominate a guardian. If you died without a will, the Texas laws of succession would dictate how your assets are parceled out – possibly to the wrong people.
- Powers of attorney – A durable power of attorney appoints someone to manage your finances and legal matters if you become incapacitated. A health care power of attorney appoints someone to authorize medical decisions. These could be two separate people or one trusted family member or friend.
- Living will – Also known as an advance directive to physicians, a living will states your specific wishes regarding resuscitation, life support and other end-of-life scenarios. It gives direction to doctors and relieves your family of heart-wrenching decisions.
- Trusts – Our lawyers can set up various types of trusts to accomplish your goals, including probate avoidance, privacy, asset protection, tax planning and providing for family members with special needs.
