A will is basic to any estate plan, but a will is subject to probate — and to public scrutiny. Many of our clients select trusts that meet their estate goals. Talk to an estate planning lawyer at Butler, Vines & Babb about the trust instruments that may fit your needs — revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, charitable trusts, special needs trusts and others. A trust can transfer assets to another person without the time and expense of going through probate.
Proper estate planning will limit the impact of federal and state estate taxes, as well as ensure an orderly business succession. There are a number of devices that can be employed to accomplish these goals, such as the Family Limited Partnership (FLP).
Estate planning can give you peace of mind in knowing that your family knows how medical decisions should be handled and how your property should be transferred. Contact a lawyer who will listen carefully to your needs and help you develop an estate plan that fits those needs. At Butler, Vines and Babb, G. Keving Hardin is the lawyer that focuses his practice on Estate Planning.
