Clinton Probate Lawyers Providing Estate Planning Services
Our experienced estate planning attorneys in Clinton handle the full spectrum of issues dealing with individual's estates under Tennessee law:
- Wills and powers of attorney
- Probate and estate administration
- Conservatorship proceedings
- Will contests and probate disputes
From our long experience in this area of the law, we have witnessed the dividends of good estate planning. We have also dealt with the aftermath when estate plans were drafted poorly or neglected altogether.
Estate planning is a set of documents that protects family wealth and guides your loved ones. In the event of your death, it spells out inheritance on your terms rather than the Tennessee laws of succession. If you become physically or mentally incapacitated, through sudden tragedy or gradual decline, your family will know your wishes and have the authority to act on your behalf. We help you address a wide range of scenarios to give you peace of mind regarding your family and your legacy, come what may.
Estate administration (aka probate) relates to the disposition of a person's estate when he or she passes away. We represent family members who have been named as executor in the will or appointed as personal representative by a probate court. We can assist with all the details (and any unforeseen glitches) of settling an estate, including full-service counsel if you live out of state and need a local attorney.
We also represent any party in probate disputes relating to the validity of the will, the rights of excluded heirs, the distribution of assets or breach of fiduciary duty.
Conservatorship is legal stewardship over a family member's finances or personal care. If there is no power of attorney in place, it may be necessary to petition the probate court to be named conservator if the person can no longer manage his or her own affairs due to illness or disability.
