Estate planning attorneys are a necessary part of an individual’s life, and it is important to find the right one for you. It can feel overwhelming with the thought of all the future decisions that need to be made. But if you have an estate plan in place, it can make your life easier now and later when it’s time to put that plan into action. Here are some things to keep in mind when looking for an estate planning attorney.

Our Estate Planning Services

It can sometimes be challenging to discuss what type of medical care you would like to receive in the future, but it is important that you do. Through a comprehensive estate plan which includes a Living Will, a Power-of-Attorney and a Health Care Proxy, we can help you secure the best healthcare options.

If you get started early enough, it’s possible to protect your assets from creditors and future lawsuit settlements. Through various methods such as investing in exempt property and putting real estate property into trusts, we can help you protect your assets.

You’ve put your blood, sweat and tears into your business, and it is likely your life’s work. So, what happens to your company after you’re gone? That’s where a business exit plan comes in.

Whether your business is passing to the next generation, current employees, or some other new ownership, planning for that transition is critical. Let TLC Law, PLLC help you navigate your business exit strategy.

Designating beneficiaries is a vital part of the estate planning process, since they will often control a large portion of your wealth. We help you understand the importance of keeping beneficiary designations updated and what situations might trigger a review of your beneficiaries.

Digital asset planning has become an important part of modern day estate planning. It’s vital to have a plan for things like your social media accounts, online banking accounts and everything in between. We can help you protect the safety and privacy of your loved ones with digital asset planning.

It is highly recommended that you consider estate planning sooner rather than later, particularly if you have a very large estate. We can advise you on the best way to avoid excessive estate tax and plan ahead to minimize your Federal estate tax.
Designating a guardian is an essential part of a comprehensive estate plan. A declaration of guardianship informs the court who you wish to serve as a guardian for your estate, your person, your minor children, or your incapacitated adult children in the event of your death or incapacity.
A last will and testament, or commonly referred to as simply a “will,” allows you to name an executor of your estate, appoint a guardian for minor children, and to designate who gets what property and when.
A living wills is an important document that allows you to determine ahead of time what types of life-sustaining medical procedures you do or do not want. Living wills are ideal for individuals who oppose certain procedures that serve only to prolong the dying process.
Trusts, which can be either irrevocable or revocable, can be created while you are alive or upon your death. A trust, when properly created, may provide you with asset protection, estate tax savings and even control when and how your assets are distributed to your heirs. Our attorneys can review your individual situation and help you decide if a trust, or even multiple trusts, is right for what you need.

    My ex wife filed so many things against me and my current wife hindering us from my kids. Ty came in to his office on his time off and we made a plan. Long story short I couldn’t have picked a better Law Firm than TLC Law. Every question … More I had through this whole experience was answered. Ty would not give up he faught this case like they was his kids. I can not thank TLC Law enough for what they did for me and my family and sticking through even when the case was really tough. Hopefully I will never need a Laywer again for my kids but if I do they will be the first ones I will call. Thank you Ty, Natalie, Kacey and Kelly.
