Estate Planning

Austin Wills and Trusts Attorney

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

One of the most thoughtful things you can do for your family and friends is to draft a will, trust, or other estate plan for yourself. If you haven’t experienced a family member dying without having left a valid will, it’s not the most pleasant experience. Formerly cordial family members can turn against each other out of greed.

This is all totally avoidable! With the right estate plan, you can ensure that the proper people are given the things that you want them to have when you pass away or are unable to make decisions.

In addition to wills, there are other estate planning documents that can help prevent future headaches. A living will (also known as medical power of attorney), for example, can dictate what type of care you’d like when you’re alive but no longer able to make medical decisions for yourself.

A trust or power of attorney for asset management might be helpful if you have money that you’d like to control even after your death.

To be effective, an estate plan must be customized to your specific needs. Contact us today to learn how we can protect your future.
