Estate Planning
Spokane Estate Planning Attorneys assist with drafting a Spokane Will, a Spokane Trust or assisting with a Spokane Probate.
A will is a written declaration of a person’s intent to distribute property after death. Getting A Spokane will is essential to your end-of-life planning and the beginning of your peace of mind.

One of the most important things an individual can do for their family in an estate plan is to execute a valid will. A last will and testament can help to ensure your desires for you and your family are realized and help to avoid a costly and timely dispute between family members. Likewise, getting the right attorney to assist you with your estate plan, a local Spokane estate planning attorney you can sit down with and whom you can trust, is important.

When you’re thinking about your last will and testament, it’s also a good time to think about powers of attorney and living wills, which can protect you and your family in the event of an incapacitating illness or accident. The living will can also help avoid disagreements between family members on the painful question of continuing life support in extreme medical circumstances. Spokane attorney Shane Coleman can assist with all your Spokane will and Spokane estate planning needs.

Additionally, depending on the size of your estate, it may be subject to federal estate taxes, which may create a substantial burden on the estate and your survivors. However, there are ways Spokane estate planning attorneys can help you to avoid these taxes (e.g. establishing a Trust, re-titling property, making early gifts to beneficiaries, etc.).

Some of the services we can provide as Spokane estate planning attorneys include:

- Simple Wills
- Livings Wills
- Trusts
- Powers of Attorney
- Medical Directives

For more information about planning for these important times and how Spokane estate planning attorneys can help you, if you are located here in Spokane, we are pleased to offer a free consultation. If necessary, we can arrange a visit at a location more convenient to your needs. We are Spokane estate planning lawyers that will work to meet your needs.
Probate
Spokane Probate Attorney Shane P. Coleman can assist in all aspects of the Probate process including handling the probate or disputing the handling of the Probate by another.
A Probate in Spokane can be a simple process, but it can also be a difficult and stressful process depending on the estate, the beneficiaries of the estate or creditors of the estate.

In addition to Spokane Probate, Mr. Coleman can assist in preparing an estate plan or with end-of-life planning. Whether it be a Spokane simple will or a more detailed Spokane Trust, Mr. Coleman can help with all your needs.

In addition to Spokane Estate Planning, Mr. Coleman also can assist with a Spokane Bankruptcy.

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

Yes.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

Completing quality work in the most cost-effective way is always or goal.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

We are open to all forms of alternative dispute resolution and are always looking to the means of resolution that will best suit our clients and result in the best outcome.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

Yes.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We are a small firm with the experience of large firms and can offer a more personal, valuable experience.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

It is always helpful when a client has educated him/herself prior to hiring an attorney. Having all the information and knowing how the process works makes life and the attorney-client relationship better for all parties.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

While we are happy to review documents prepared by clients and provide them with our opinion as to certain issues, it is not our practice to approve or put our stamp of approval on the work of a third party. We have spent years educating ourselves and contemplating the best practice and language in drafting legal documents and would recommend all individuals seek the opinion and assistance of an attorney.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Our firm has entered into flat fee or cafeteria like service agreements, but in general it is no our practice.

Shane Coleman

In 2010, Shane P. Coleman, after seven years of working in-house in legal departments for large corporations and in a large law firm, decided to open his own practice. The goal was to provide valuable experience, quality work and a personal touch at something other than large law firm prices. Now with his own practice, Mr. Coleman can utilize his past experience and his education (an advanced degree in taxation) to assist those in presently in need or those looking to plan against future problems. It is important to have an estate plan, if for no other reason than to make life more simple for those you love. The end of life can be a difficult thing, but having your estate in order can make the process a lot easier.

Completing quality work in the most cost-effective way is always or goal.
