Kentucky Wills and Trusts Lawyers
Estate matters are very personal. Everyone has unique goals. At the law firm of McBrayer, we take pride in the personalized nature of our estate planning and estate administration services. Our attorneys are dedicated to providing hands-on attention to the professionals we represent so that estate matters are handled the right way in every case.
Any estate planning lawyer can create a plan that minimizes taxes. The real question is, can the lawyer create a plan that achieves all of the client's goals? We have the experience to do just that, particularly for complex, high-end estates. We start by learning about our clients' assets and income flow, learning about family and about goals. With that information, we determine the estate planning tools that must be used. These tools include:
- Trusts (qualified domestic trusts, educational trusts, dynasty trusts)
- Powers of attorney
- Advance directives
Our estate planning attorneys also work with our business and corporate law attorneys to provide business succession planning services.
In addition to creating estate plans, we can assist with updating plans. This is particularly important due to upcoming changes in laws that dictate estate taxes. Estate plans that may have been perfectly acceptable for the past 20 years may no longer serve the intended purpose. We will review the plan and make any necessary modifications.
Probate And Estate Administration
We assist individuals in the administration of loved ones' estates. Our lawyers are skilled in navigating through the probate process. We can also handle all will contests and estate litigation that may arise.
We also provide postmortem planning services. This involves creating planning documents after death and is similar in nature to traditional estate planning services.
