Estate Planning and Probate

The Law Office of Keith R. Taylor has lawyers who are experienced in estate planning and probate law. If you want to contest a will, if you want to change your will, or if you simply need to begin you own estate planning, we can help.

Despite the common misconception that wills and trusts are only for the wealthy, they are essential tools in estate planning for all of us. An estate plan is the legal mechanism for transferring your property based on your wishes upon your death. For most people it also involves creating a plan to take care of obligations and affairs and personal medical choices in case of disability. Estate planning ensures that you will be taken care of as you age and your loved ones will be cared for after you have passed.

Below are some of the estate planning issues our firm can address:

Antenuptial Agreement

Beneficiary Designation

Business Succession

Charitable Lead Trust

Disability and Health Insurance

Durable Power of Attorney

Our attorneys can help you begin your estate planning by analyzing your assets, your liabilities, your needs and wishes, the wishes of you family, and your future prospects. Next, they will create a plan to meet your needs and wishes by determining who is to get your assets, naming the executor of your will, naming the trustee of any trusts you may create, naming the guardian of your children should both you and your spouse pass away, and naming someone who will care for you and your assets should you become unable. In addition, they will help by providing for your children's education, insurance coverage for injury, disability, or death, providing for investment and management of your assets after your death, tax planning to reduce income and estate taxes, and helping avoid probate.

While it may seem unpleasant to discuss the end of life, it is a necessary process to ensure that you and your family are taken care of in the way you wish, and the attorneys at the Law Office of Keith R. Taylor will help guide you through the estate planning process, making it as simple as possible, so you can have the peace of mind that things will be taken care of for you.

The experienced attorneys at the Law Office of Keith R. Taylor will work with you to create the right plan to meet all of your needs. Please contact us today to set up an appointment.
