Houston Estate Planning Attorney

Begin the Process of Estate Planning with a Houston Lawyer

The process of estate planning involves getting your affairs in order and properly planning for your incapacitation or death. Many people often believe they do not have enough property or a big enough estate to even think about estate planning; others do not even want to imagine the idea of what is to come. The truth is, however, that everyone can benefit from estate planning. Our Houston estate planning lawyer can help you get your affairs in order by establishing important legal documents and helping you prepare for the administration of your estate upon your death. At Shepherd & Associates, we can provide you with the knowledge needed to feel comfortable in making important life decisions.

Benefits of Estate Planning in Houston, TX

There are multiple benefits involved with estate planning. These benefits include:

  • Protecting You, Your Loved Ones and Estate: Without an estate plan, the court becomes responsible for appointing a guardian for you if you become incapacitated; appointing a guardian for your minor child if you pass away or become unable to take care of them; and deciding who inherits your property.
  • Minimizing Estate Taxes: By understanding the multiple strategies, you can reduce the estate taxes that get placed onto your property when you pass away. This means that you become able to pass down as much of your assets as possible to your loved ones.
  • Providing You with Peace of Mind: When you successfully plan for your estate with an experienced Harris County estate planning attorney, you can feel confident and safe in knowing that your affairs are in order and that your family will be protected.
  • Protecting Your Loved One with Special Needs: Oftentimes, when money or property is left behind to an individual with special needs, it can affect the amount of assistance the government provides. By successfully planning for a family member with special needs, you can leave behind money and assets without it affecting government assistance they receive.
  • Avoiding Probate: Our Houston firm can help you make the appropriate documents so that your estate does not go through the time-consuming and costly process of probate. This can save your family the time and hassle of having to endure this procedure after your death.
