Houston Wills Attorney
An enforceable will is the cornerstone of a comprehensive estate plan. No matter how complicated your estate is, and no matter what other estate planning tools are needed, a will can help tie together all the pieces of your estate plan. A will helps to ensure that your wishes are recognized and that your assets are distributed in such a way that provides for your loved ones.
A will can also be used to tie together an estate plan that addresses matters of business succession, various investment accounts, and substantial real estate holdings. Once you draft your will, you can also amend it when significant life events occur.
Coordinating Your Will With Other Estate Planning Tools
In addition to creating wills, we utilize a range of estate planning instruments to implement a strategy that meets your specific needs. Options to consider include:
Trusts — A trust is a tool that can be used to solve particular problems such as providing for a minor, avoiding excessive taxation or keeping your family’s affairs out of the public record. There are many different types of trusts. We can help you choose a trust that is right for your situation.
Powers of attorney — Power of attorney is a document that names a person of your choice to make decisions on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitated. For example, a financial power of attorney can be used to designate a trusted person to make business and financial decisions, including the payment of bills. A medical power of attorney is similar but addresses only medical decisions in the event that you become incapacitated.
Advance directives — An advance directive, also called a Living Will, allows you to determine exactly what types of end-of-life care you do and do not want to receive.
