Estate Planning Law Contact our estate planning attorneys today for peace of mind.

The sooner you plan how your estate will be distributed after your death, the better off your family will be in the future.

An estate encompasses more than just a house and the land on which it is settled. An individual’s estate refers to his or her total property, which includes any real estate and all personal property items. You have worked long and hard establishing and building your personal estate. This being the case, you have most likely accumulated a plethora of assets in total property. Have you ever thought about how you want all the components of your estate to be distributed to the next generation in your family? If not, you could save your loved ones considerable time and stress in the future by going through the estate planning process sooner rather than later.

Estate planning in the state of Texas is a comprehensive process that takes into account multiple elements only experienced estate planning attorneys are skilled at navigating. Trust the estate planning attorneys at Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, L.L.P. to aid in developing an estate plan that is unique to your needs.

In the state of Texas, there are various tools available when going through the estate planning process including wills, trusts and powers of attorney.

At Hayes, Berrry, White & Vanzant, our estate planning attorneys can provide assistance for using these tools in a way that fits your personal needs and preferences.


Estate Planning with Wills and Trusts

Wills and trusts are powerful asset preservation tools used in estate planning law that help to ensure your final wishes regarding your estate are respected and carried out the way you want.

  • Wills – Wills are important documents that delineate how your assets and personal property will be distributed to family members and other individuals following your death. Without a will, the state of Texas will distribute your property how it sees fit after giving precedence to your spouse and/or children. To ensure your will is drafted in accordance to your wishes and Texas probate law, it is prudent to seek the guidance from a knowledgeable estate planning lawyer from Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant.
  • Trusts – Trusts are legal rights to property a grantor transfers to another party known as a trustee, which can either be a person or an institution. Trusts are beneficial in estate planning law in that they can allow families to avoid probate, preserve assets and have protection from creditors.

If you are interested in drafting a will or setting up a trust, contact one of our estate planning attorneys today.
