Estate Planning
For nearly twenty-five years, the attorneys at Carpenter & Lewis PLLC have been advising our clients and drafting quality estate planning documents that are thorough and custom to our clients needs and desires.
Helping our clients protect their assets for those they love has been our goal from the very beginning. We are recognized throughout East Tennessee for our experience in educating individuals about the importance of proper estate planning.

At C&L, we focus on protecting families from the expense and delay of probate, explaining long-term care planning options and minimizing tax consequences, both during lifetime and upon death. We also implement the basic and advanced estate planning strategies our clients need - and we assist in administering clients' estates upon death or disability. Because the majority of the work our firm does relates to Trusts and Estates, our focused practice allows us to answer the complex questions and concerns you have about estate planning.

Since 1989, the aim of our law firm is to help you, our client, understand the basic principles of estate planning, its importance and why each individual needs a plan. We have helped thousands of individuals secure their assets and eased their minds - and helped the families left behind. By taking advantage of the services that C&L has to offer, you can be assured that your legacy and your family will be protected.
