Estate Plans Tailored to Your Unique Needs

Our Houston wills and trusts lawyers will work closely with you to develop a plan and all necessary documents that will address your major areas of concern, such as:

Disposition of your estate: A proper plan allows you to distribute your assets in accordance with your wishes. Clearly drafted documents, such as wills, can prevent misunderstandings and arguments about your intentions. In addition, you can select who will be responsible for overseeing your estate administration in probate.

Asset protection: Effective estate planning allows you to protect your children's inheritances, reduce estate taxes and minimize future legal fees that will be paid by your estate. Additionally, proper Medicaid planning may reduce the costs of long-term care and protect your assets for future generations.

Asset management: You can help address the management of your assets during your lifetime. Trusts and other legal arrangements, such as business succession planning, will ensure that your assets are managed in a way that meets your objectives. Properly drafted powers of attorney can provide decision-making authority to people you trust should you become unable to manage your affairs.

Health care decisions: Through the use of advance directives and other documents, your caregivers and family will know your health care wishes. These documents can remove a difficult burden from your loved ones by clearly stating your medical choices.

Guardianships: You can appoint a person to be the guardian of your minor children should you be the last surviving parent. You may also designate a guardian for yourself in case of future incapacity. If a guardianship is not the proper fit, we can explore alternatives to guardianship.
