Legal Services in Austin & Houston
Wills & Estate Planning - Austin OnlyAs humans it is necessary to prepare for what happens next. As we go through our lives, this concept does not escape us. We put money aside for retirement, invest in life and other insurance, and we choose what will happen to our property when we pass on, so that our loved-ones are provided-for in the way only we know is best. While Texas laws are not wholly unfavorable to surviving families, it cannot account for your personal desires, relationships, or knowledge of your family situation. Therefore, contacting an attorney to plan for your estate is extremely important. Life is uncertain, accidents happen every day, and changes occur that will affect either your wishes, or the validity of a previously executed will (i.e. divorce), so estate planning not just a task for later. At MacGeorge Law Firm, our legal staff can help you draft a will today that takes care of your family when you pass on in the way that you think is best. And, we include yearly review of your file to ensure current compliance with Texas law, and to help you account for any changes that you may desire as a result of changes in your life. Call our Houston office to plan for your family’s future today.
Trust Creation - Austin & HoustonTrusts can help you avoid a lot of the stringent requirements associated with the probate of a will, and make administration more cost-effective, transfer and management of your property easier if you become incapacitated, or even help to prevent a contest from your family.
