Estate Planning

Dothan AttorneyOur firm represents people from all walks of life and from all levels of income.  Whether you rent an apartment with few assets, have a modest home and assets, or have amassed significant wealth over a lifetime, your estate plan should ensure your wishes are fully and completely carried out. We will develop original estate planning documents, as well as revise existing documents, to ensure your needs are met. As you progress though the different stages of life, different priorities will need to be met and circumstances – both joyous and sad – such as births, deaths, retirement, and illness, will occur.  Your estate planning will need to grow and change with the circumstances in your life.

During your consultation with our attorneys, we will talk to you about your wants and needs for estate planning documents such as:

  • Wills: to state your wishes regarding how property and assets should be distributed upon your death
  • Trusts: to provide for the gifting of money and/or assets to people and/or organizations (may be revocable or irrevocable)
  • Powers of attorney: to give decision-making authority to a trusted relative or friend
  • Guardianships: to be established for minor children as well as adults with special needs

Our firm also offers assistance in probate and estate administration, the process of finalizing the affairs of a decedent's estate.
