Experienced Counsel in Estate Planning Matters
To create a plan specifically tailored to accomplish your estate planning goals, you want an experienced attorney to guide you through the process. There are many different strategies for protecting your assets and passing your estate to loved ones. You want a lawyer who can help you determine the approach that will best meet your goals.
At the law offices of Wade A. Williams, in Eureka Springs and Fayetteville, we have over 19 years of experience handling all matters related to estate planning. We are committed to helping our clients protect their loved ones and themselves with carefully crafted estate plans.
Our Estate Planning Practice
When you hire us to assist you with your estate planning, we will start the process by learning as much as we can about you and your financial situation, as well as your estate planning objectives. We will carefully explain the different strategies for meeting your goals, including the use of wills or trusts, the re-titling of assets to avoid probate, and lifetime gifts. When formulating your estate plan, we will look carefully at tax consequences, as well as ways to minimize the challenges faced by your loved ones. We will then recommend a specific plan, based on your needs.
Once you have determined how you want to proceed, we will prepare and execute the documents necessary to put your estate plan in place, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, living wills and health care directives. We can also help you put a guardianship in place for minor children or others.
If you have been named executor, administrator or personal representative of the estate of a loved one, we can help you complete the steps required by the probate court, so that you can settle the estate. We will work with you to complete and file an accounting of the assets of the estate, pay final debts and taxes, and oversee the orderly distribution of property in accordance with the terms of the will.
