Texas estate-planning attorney maximizing your asset protection
A will is essential at every stage of your life, providing you with the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes for what will happen upon your death. A will is necessary if you intend to leave property to someone who is not your blood relative e.g., a domestic partner, a friend or a charity. If you die without a will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your children and even what happens to your beloved pet, and the decisions the court makes might not reflect your desires.
Jay E. Reedy at the Law Offices of Jay E. Reedy is a wills and estates attorney with more than 25 years of experience, and can assist by drafting a valid will to ensure your intentions are honored.
Creating an optimal estate plan:
Drafting an effective will requires more than filling in a form. If a court determines that your will is invalid, your desires will not be honored upon your death. Jay E. Reedy meticulously drafts your will and considers all aspects of your estate plan. He reviews your family arrangements, financial situation and philosophical goals to guide you in making the best estate planning decisions, and draft your will accordingly.
Changing your will:
As your life evolves, so may your estate plan. You may need to update your will throughout your life. Jay E. Reedy drafts valid codicils that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, parenthood status, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.
Appointing a guardian:
Your will allows you to make decisions about the future care of your minor children. This is especially crucial if you are a single parent or in the event that both parents die in a common incident. If you have not named a guardian for your children, the court appoints one, who may make parental decisions contrary to what you would have wanted. In your will, you can also make arrangements for the care of your pets, naming a guardian to take responsibility for them.
Valuing and managing the estate:
Jay E. Reedy assists executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. He has a team of experts available to assist in every aspect of estate probate. When appropriate, the firm calls upon accountants, financial advisors, real estate agents, property managers and other professionals to assist with executor duties.
