Estate Planning For Asset Protection
When a person dies in Texas, their loved ones will look for a Last Will and Testament which directs how property is to be divided among surviving family and friends. While there may be some idea of which individuals will receive certain items, there may be some disagreements about how assets should be distributed.

Our team will review your wishes and discuss what we can do to ensure they are carried out.

The Steps to Estate Planning in TX
During the initial planning stages, we will help you compile a list of all of your property and assets that you wish to pass down. This ensures that we have a thorough accounting of your assets and also makes it easy for your family to track down where items and accounts are located. Then we will talk about what you want to accomplish and what we need to do to make that happen.
When we are discussing your estate plan with you, we focus on many different issues, including:
- Beneficiaries - Discussing which property you want to pass along to certain beneficiaries under your will
- Trust - Helping you determine if your trust is revocable, irrevocable, charitable or special needs
- Creation - Drafting and establishing the trusts that you wish to create
After you have created your plan, it is essential that you keep the document up to date. Any changes to your family, such as a divorce, remarriage, or loss of a loved one, should prompt you to take a fresh look to make sure your estate plan remains current. If any revisions are necessary, our attorneys will help you make all necessary modifications to ensure your final wishes are able to be carried out properly.
