Experienced Missouri Estate Planning Attorneys
The experienced attorneys at The Elder Firm, LLC possess in-depth knowledge about all aspects of estate planning and can help you with:
Creating the best estate plan
Our attorneys can advise you on the best approach to planning your estate. We review your family arrangements, financial situations and philosophical goals to guide you in devising your estate plan. We thoroughly analyze your objectives and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your minor children, supporting personal philanthropic causes, and protecting your loved ones. We can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish a living trust if doing so is beneficial to your estate.
Writing your last will and testament
A will provides you with the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your loved ones and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. A will is necessary if you intend to leave property to somebody besides a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, friend or charity. If you die without a will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your minor children and even what happens to your beloved pet — decisions that might not reflect your desires. At The Elder Firm, LLC, our attorneys can draft a valid will that ensures your intentions are honored.
Establishing a living trust
Our attorneys evaluate whether specific legal tools can benefit your estate and discuss your many options. Also called a revocable trust, a living trust can provide for continued care of minor children or an incapacitated family member. Because your heirs avoid probate, the use of a living trust can expedite the distribution of assets and keep the estate’s information out of the public records. We can prepare the documents necessary to establish a trust that is individually tailored to your personal needs.
