A well-prepared estate plan helps ensure your assets go to your loved ones after you pass away. The right strategy also helps ensure you preserve as much of your estate as possible during your lifetime. However, the process is complex, and as taxes and expenses can quickly reduce the size of your estate, having the right estate planning attorney on your side can therefore be an irreplaceable asset.
Attorney Tanner Franklin at Hightower, Franklin, & James, PLLC., will strive to ensure your loved ones receive your assets according to your wishes. He will create a will for you that clearly states your desires concerning the distribution of your estate. As a part of his estate planning services, he can also assist in preparing medical powers of attorney, durable powers of attorney and living wills (directives to physicians).
Regardless of your income level, everyone should have an estate plan in place. For parents raising children, homeowners, and sole proprietors running their own business, budgetary restraints and expenses make it challenging to pass on the assets you worked so hard to obtain. Many of us own real estate or other property. It is crucial to bequeath such assets in the manner you desire and with a minimum of expense. Should you run a small business, you will wish to have a plan that allows the business to continue operating when you are no longer available to make business decisions.

At no time will Tanner hand your estate planning concerns off to an inexperienced associate. He will examine your circumstances and provide you with a personalized plan to best meet your needs.
