One of the most important legal rights you may exercise during your lifetime is your right to determine who will be able to make healthcare and financial decisions on your behalf should you no longer be able to do so. Our firm has provided guidance and assistance to generations of Tennesseans as they finalize and execute their planning documents including Powers of Attorney for Finances, Powers of Attorney for Healthcare, and Living Wills.
PLANNING YOUR ESTATE
Estate planning is not solely about passing property to the next generation. A solid estate plan will not only plan for the distribution of property but will also account for the unique circumstances and dynamic of the family for which the plan is created. There is no one-size-fits-all estate plan. Our experienced estate planners listen as you describe your own unique family dynamic, goals, and wishes and will assist you in devising an estate plan based on that dynamic. The backbone of any estate plan is the Last Will and Testament. This can be used in combination with other planning documents, such as trusts, to ensure your family members are cared for after your passing.
PLANNING FOR MINORS
Regardless of your wealth and income, if you are a parent with a minor child, you should have a Last Will and Testament. In a Will, you have the crucial ability to designate who you wish to be the guardian of your minor children in the event of your untimely passing.
