Franklin Asset Protection and Estate Planning Attorney
My firm is committed to providing personal service to clients in the areas of asset protection, wills, trusts, and other estate planning as well as handling administration of estates and trusts. I have extensive experience in trust litigation and can help ensure your rights as a beneficiary are represented.
I also advise clients concerning elder law issues and represent clients who have business planning or business litigation concerns.
My goal is to provide high quality, individually tailored, legal services in a caring and efficient manner to those who need help in my areas of expertise. No two clients face identical circumstances and no two clients share identical goals; I work to tailor each representation to the complete needs and wishes of the client.

The Law Office of Justin M. Gilbert is a specialized in estate planning, including elder law, probate, trust litigation, and trust administration.
I have extensive experience drafting tailored estate planning documents, unique to the needs of each client, including:
-Advanced Health Care Directives
-Powers of Attorney
-VA Benefits Planning
I have experience structuring estate planning documents to allow clients to continue to qualify for Medicaid and Veterans benefits. In addition, I have experience drafting trusts for various family dynamics, including divorced clients, high net-worth clients, small estates, and non-citizen clients. I will work with you to ensure all you goals are met.
I also have extensive experience in trust administration and trust litigation. As a trustee, I can work with you to ensure you are complying with the law and the terms of the trust, and can protect you from any personal liability. As a beneficiary, I can ensure your rights are protected, and that you receive the benefits that the settlor intended you receieve.
I wanted to practice where I could have a positive influence on people in concrete ways. I like coming up with creative solutions to help individuals solve problems.
I believe that clients should learn as much as they can about the legal issues they face. While it is unlikely that they will have the time and training to bring their level of understanding up to that of an attorney who has developed expertise in the area of the law in question, study of the issues by the client would make for a more effective discussion with the attorney about how to proceed with and resolve the particular legal matter in question.
I have spent years helping people just like you establish, update, & eventually resolve their estate plans. I know how important it is to secure the future of your estate & finances. With my expertise & commitment to excellence, your legacy is in good hands. For me, it is about more than words on a page or numbers in a ledger. I want to understand what those words mean to you & how they represent your livelihood, values, and priorities. I know it takes time to build a relationship of trust, and I intend to do whatever is necessary to let you know your affairs are fully cared for.
I tailor my services to each client's needs & situation because I know each person's life is unique. I have successfully represented hundreds of clients in all matters relating to living trusts, estate planning, probate, business formation & planning, and real estate & elder law.
My philosophy for success is simple: My success is tied to your success.
It has always been a matter of priorities for attorney Justin Gilbert, who believes in helping his clients make solid plans for not only their own futures, but for the sake of the legacies they leave as well.

He enjoys working with families, helping them retain control of their property and preserve their children's future through wills and trusts tailored to their values and goals.
Says Justin, "true that we don't inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children. The peace of mind proper financial and estate planning offers is indeed priceless, sometimes laying foundations for generations to come."
