Estate Planning Attorney in the Houston, TX Area
Estate planning helps you ensure your wishes are upheld when you are no longer able to speak for yourself. An estate plan outlines how you want your assets to be distributed amongst your heirs after you die. It can also allow you to state your wishes regarding your own medical treatment if you are to become incapacitated and unable to communicate your wishes in the future.

We also assist clients with estate administration and estate litigation when disputes arise over a deceased loved one’s assets. Get in touch with us today to speak with an estate planning lawyer and start exploring your options.
We Will Create a Personalized Estate Plan Based On Your Unique Needs and Objectives
Will and trusts are two of the most common estate planning tools. A will allows you to state your wishes regarding the distribution of your assets. It also allows you to name a legal guardian to care for your minor child if you are to die before they reach adulthood. Assets named in a will are subject to go through probate.
While a will suffices for many clients, some have more complex needs and would benefit more from forming a trust. A trust is a legal arrangement in which assets are transferred to a third-party trustee who holds them until the trustor dies. When that happens, the trustee then distributes the assets to the trustor’s beneficiaries according to their wishes. In many cases, assets placed in a trust can avoid probate, which saves beneficiaries time and money.
We can also assist you with:
