Creating The Best Estate Plan

Our attorneys review your family arrangements, financial situations and philosophical goals to advise you on the best approach to planning your estate distribution. We thoroughly analyze your objectives and strategize the best means of:

  • Transferring your assets

Writing Your Last Will And Testament

A will provides you with the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your loved ones and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. A will is necessary if you intend to leave property to somebody besides a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, friend or charity. If you die without a will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your minor children and even what happens to your beloved pet — decisions that might not reflect your desires. Our attorneys can draft a valid will that ensures your intentions are honored.

Establishing A Living Trust

We evaluate whether specific legal tools can benefit your estate and discuss your many options. Also called a revocable trust, a living trust can provide for continued care of minor children or an incapacitated family member. If your assets are held in a living trust, your heirs may avoid probate, which expedites the distribution of assets and keeps the estate’s private information out of the public records. We can prepare the documents necessary to establish a trust that is tailored to your personal needs.

“Ed Murrelle and his legal team are excellent. They resolved my personal injury claim after a serious automobile accident. The other driver, who was found at fault, was not injured, but my arm was broken by the explosive force of my air bag inflating. After”
