One of the most important things you can do in your life is to set up a properly executed estate plan. By doing so, you can significantly reduce future taxes and fees, as well as ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes, rather than by the state.
I have helped clients draft estate plans that meet their unique needs, goals and wishes for more than 40 years. As a Lexington estate planning lawyer, I will work with you to secure your family's future and will always be available down the road if your situation or wishes change.
Offering Estate Planning Services Throughout Kentucky
I offer many tools and services to ensure your estate plan is carried out according to your wishes. These include:
- Wills: Having an executable will is a very important part of most people's estate planning. If you pass away without a valid will, your family might face time-consuming and expensive legal challenges. Additionally, your property will be divided by the state, not by you. When I help you draft a will, you will have peace of mind knowing that it is valid and that all of your wishes are taken into account.
- Trusts: Many of my clients come to me seeking help with testamentary trusts, or a trust that arises when its creator passes away. Parents with minor children and children with special needs can use these trusts to provide income and distribute assets to beneficiaries at predetermined times.
- Probate litigation: Probate litigation occurs when one or more people contest the validity of a will. This process is complicated, involving many steps that must be carefully followed. Whether you are looking at defending a will or challenging its validity, I will use my experience and history of success to guide you through your probate disputes.
I will work hard to make sure your wishes are secure as we develop your personalized estate plan. By combining my extensive background with the help of experienced tax professionals, you will leave my office with an estate plan that protects you and your family's future.
