Houston Estate Planning
Jones Morris Klevenhagen focuses a portion of its practice on estate planning, and has become a trusted representative of the interests of Texas residents. Our attorneys are well-versed in estate planning techniques that will help our clients prepare documents to protect and distribute the assets of their estates before and after death in the manner that best accomplishes their wishes. We work hard to ensure that their loved ones are cared for properly, and we are constantly monitoring the law so that plans will always be the most effective for their situations. If the concern is about the use of assets for care during the client’s lifetime, we bring solutions to the table to develop plans that covers those costs in the way that is most beneficial to our clients and their families.
Many people who could benefit greatly from an estate plan do not even realize they have a need for one. Anyone who owns a home, has personal savings or a retirement plan of any kind, or even simply own a car or furniture has an estate. An estate plan lets the individual – not the government – determine what will happen to their assets. And at Jones Morris Klevenhagen, we are committed to providing affordable estate plans to match an estate of any size.
An estate plan should be in place if:
- You are the parent of a minor or a disabled child
- You have, or expect to have, heirs to your estate (including your parents or other relatives)
- You don’t want the government to determine how your assets are distributed
- You want to have a plan in place for your finances and healthcare should you become disabled
- You want to avoid the public proceedings of a possible probate of your estate
- You wish to leave any part of your assets to charitable organizations
- You wish to leave any part of your assets to persons other than your legal heirs (to friends, associates, or family members who are not next of kin)
Almost everyone can benefit from an estate plan, and Jones Morris Klevenhagen is committed to providing affordable planning for all persons, no matter how small or large the estate may be.
