Serving You And Your Family In Estate Planning, Probate And Guardianship Matters In Sugar Land, Texas, And Fort Bend County

Providing Clients Peace Of Mind

I have been providing probate, estate planning and guardianship services to members of my community since 2014. I feel a great sense of service in helping people with these matters which ease the burden of decision making upon a person’s death or incapacity. Because I feel so strongly that everyone needs an estate plan, I strive to keep my rates affordable. My name is on the door, and you will have my personal attention with these important decisions.

People put off estate planning for many reasons. Perhaps thinking about your death or the death of your spouse makes you uncomfortable. Maybe you don’t think you have enough assets to need a will. Just know that in the long run, addressing these subjects will provide peace of mind and comfort knowing that you have taken care of your family. I pride myself on helping families with this process and making it as painless as possible. I treat your family like my family.

Estate Planning for Real People

You may think that only the very wealthy need to worry about estate planning, but you probably have more assets to pass on to your survivors than you realize. For example, do you own a home and a car? Do you have a life insurance policy? Maybe you have a 401(k) through your employer. All of these can help take care of your family in the event of your death. There are also documents that will tell your loved ones how you want health decisions made in case you can’t make them for yourself.

Everyone’s circumstances are different, but most people should at least have a will, a living will, medical power of attorney and durable power of attorney. These documents tell your loved ones what your wishes are and ease the burden of making difficult decisions at an emotional time. There are other documents that you may need depending on your circumstances and I will help you make sure your legal needs are covered.

Understanding Probate

Probate is the process by which a court appoints an executor to carry out the instructions in someone’s will. If there is no will, the process is more complicated. Either way, probate can be intimidating. The legal issues related to any estate can be confusing and can have consequences down the road. I am happy to discuss your loved one’s estate and help you decide what your next step should be.

What Is A Guardianship?

A guardianship is a way to ensure care for individuals without legal capacity to act for themselves, such children or vulnerable adults. In the event that you or a loved one becomes incapacitated and unable to make decisions about care or property, a guardian is appointed to handle those matters. A qualified attorney can help you determine if this path is right for your situation.
