Preparation Is Important In Estate Planning

No one wants to consider what will happen when he or she is gone. By thoughtfully approaching the topic, however, you can ensure that your wishes are carried out and the future for you and your loved ones is protected.

I am attorney Allen R. Daubenspeck. At The Daubenspeck Law Office, I can assist in executing your wishes and ensuring that your needs and goals are met. With nearly 15 years of experience, I offer guidance in preparing for the transfer of your estate as well as for the uncertainties of the future.

Creating Or Revising Your Estate Plan

There is no time like the present to begin planning. Whether your motivation is your family or your approaching retirement years, I can assist in creating a plan appropriate for you and your loved ones. Common goals when planning an estate are to:

  • Ensure that your property and assets are transferred efficiently to loved ones
  • Guard against the unknowns of the future
  • Preserve and pass down family heirlooms or legacies
  • Avoid the prospect of your estate going through probate
  • Prevent the government from getting your assets

Wills are often the foundation of an estate plan, with other tools and documents available based on your needs, estate and wishes. I will work with you to determine the appropriate path to efficiently accomplish your goals.

Addressing The Estate Planning Needs Of Loved Ones

For those with an aging parent or loved one in Tennessee, considering matters related to their estate can be challenging and emotional. I can assist with the estate planning matters of a loved one, from establishing a conservatorship to guiding you through the probate process when the time comes.

Many strive to avoid the probate process, yet many estates must pass through probate court in some way. In Tennessee, probate proceedings are straightforward and can be an effective means to distribute an estate.

However, such proceedings can be challenging for family members living out of state. I assist both executors, or those appointed to distribute the estate and beneficiaries. If you live out of state, I will work with you to efficiently administer the estate, and prioritize your time and convenience.
