Estate Planning

Estate Planning Attorneys in Lawrence, Kansas

Experienced Representation throughout Douglas County

If you need to plan for the distribution of your assets or the care of your minor children in the event of your death, you want experienced and compassionate lawyers to guide you through the process. Estate planning can be complex and confusing, with many different strategies for minimizing taxes or the time and costs of probate. An experienced attorney will help you understand your options, so that you can make informed decisions.

Our Estate Planning Practice

When you hire our firm to assist you with your estate planning, we will start by asking you a lot of questions, so that we have a good understanding of your financial status, your objectives and any special needs that you have. Next, we will thoroughly explain the different strategies available to help you accomplish your goals and the advantages and disadvantages of those strategies, including the use of wills and trusts, the re-titling of assets to avoid transfer at death, and the lifetime gifting of assets.

Once you have determined which strategy you want to employ, we will review and prepare all the documents required to create your plan and help you execute those documents to put your estate plan in place. These documents include

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills and health care directives

If you have been designated as the executor, administrator or personal representative of the estate of a loved one, we will help you navigate the probate process and successfully settle the estate. This includes preparing an inventory of assets, ensuring the payment of all taxes and other obligations of the estate, and the distribution of assets in accordance with the terms of the will. We will also help you if the will is contested for any reason.

Our offices are open Monday through Friday, from 9 am until 5 pm, and evenings and weekends by appointment. We are conveniently located just off I-70. Visa and MasterCard are welcome.
