Baytown Estate Planning Lawyer
Do you know what would happen to those you love, your property, and the other things you care about if something unexpected happened to you? If you don't have a plan (or what you have is out of date) your assets could be lost or wasted in court as your loved ones are left to deal with your affairs. And, if you have young children, they could be placed with someone you would never choose. Worse, when you don't plan, your wishes are not even considered by the Court because the State gives you their default plan.
A Different Approach to Estate Planning
At the Pinney Law Firm, our Baytown estate planning lawyer meets with you to help give you clarity about where you are, and whether your current situation works for you and your family. We charge a reduced fee for this time, which is credited to any work you decide is needed as a result of your session.
Before we meet you will complete an inventory and questionnaire to help us get clear on what you own and what needs to be considerd regarding your loved ones and belongings. When we meet, you decide whether your current plan meets your needs. If not we can design a plan that will ensure that your wishes are carried out
Today it’s more important than ever to have an in-depth plan that handles more than just who gets your property. At the Pinney Law Firm, our Baytown estate planning lawyer will help you ensure that—when the time comes—your plan is going to work, and it keeps those you love out of court and out of conflict. Just like there are many different routes you can take to get to a destination, different types of estate plans can bring you to the same place. What makes us different is that we spend a great deal of time making sure that the route you take is the best for your family.
The Estate Planning Process
Ensuring that your wishes are carried out is very important. But, we also understand that the path your loved one must take to execute the plan can be as important as the plan itself. Our Baytown estate planning lawyer will take the time to help you understand that process as well as the steps you can take now to ease that burden.
When we meet, our lawyer will get to know your family dynamics, your concerns, your goals, and your issues. He will gladly and patiently answer all your questions to produce an estate plan that is exactly right for you and those you care about. He will help you to develop a custom-tailored estate plan that takes into account your values, financial goals, and family dynamics.
Our goal is to protect the things that matter the most to you. The main reasons for a comprehensive estate plan are to preserve your wealth, minimize unnecessary conflict, and provide for a smooth—cost effective—transfer of your property to the people you care about.
And, if you have young children, then any plan should begin with protecting your children no matter what else happens. At the Pinney Law Firm, our Baytown estate planning lawyer knows there is nothing more important than protecting your children.
Our Baytown estate planning lawyer has current knowledge of both state and federal laws governing estates. Our clients enjoy a periodic complimentary review of their current estate plan to ensure that it will work when you need it the most.
