Creating a Texas Estate Plan to Meet Your Specific Needs
Many people are under the false impression that estate planning is only for the wealthy. The reality is that estates of all sizes can encounter legal difficulties when an effective plan is not in place, and a comprehensive plan may go well beyond drafting a will.
At Wright Abshire in Texas, we have a strong reputation and decades of experience in helping clients in the Houston area plan ahead to avoid unnecessary complications. We empathize with your situation, respect the goals you have for your family, and help you establish a plan that makes sense. Contact our estate planning and trust lawyers to discuss your goals today.
Benefits of Planning Your Estate
Proactively documenting your wishes can eliminate the risk of costly guesswork down the road. A well-crafted estate plan can serve as a roadmap for identifying how you would like financial and medical decisions handled in the event that you become incapacitated, and a good plan can clarify how you would like your assets distributed after your death.
Because you have worked hard to get to where you are today, the last thing you need is a generic estate plan that falls short of protecting your hard-earned assets. We will take the time to understand where you are in life, your goals for the future, and the dreams you have for your family.
Houston Lawyers Offering Comprehensive Estate Planning Services
If you are near retirement age, in a second marriage or maybe just had your first child, we can help you develop or modify a plan based on what makes sense for you at any stage in life. We have experience working with families who are trying to put the right measures in place to protect loved ones with special needs or vulnerable adults dealing with dementia and other types of illnesses. We understand that no two families are the same, so we will work with you to understand the type of estate planning services that would benefit you the most, such as:
- Simple or complex will
- Trusts including living trusts and special needs trusts
- Special needs estate planning
- Advance directives and durable power of attorney
We are committed to helping you plan ahead so you can maximize the value of your estate by reducing or avoiding estate taxes. A comprehensive estate plan can help your family avoid the hassle of probate, while giving you reassurance that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes.
