Helping You Make Your Wishes Known
Many people put off estate planning, but this can be a mistake.
When your wishes are clearly documented, your loved ones don’t have to guess what you would have wanted. They have clear direction in unambiguous language as to how you want your property and wealth divided, and what medical treatment you do and do not wish to receive.
At Turner, Coombs & Malone, PLLC, our attorneys are here to put your wishes down in writing so that you can gain the peace of mind of having firm plans in place. With law offices in Louisville, we offer trusted estate planning guidance to individuals and families in southern Kentucky and neighboring areas in Indiana.
Comprehensive Estate Planning Guidance
Our lawyers can guide you through all aspects of the estate planning process, including the creation of:
- A last will and testament: A well-drafted will makes known your wishes regarding how you want your wealth and property divided after death. You can also use a will to name a personal representative of your estate and, if you have minor children, name a guardian for them.
- Trusts: There are many different types of trusts. Some are designed to provide assets to a loved one such as a family member with special needs. Some are revocable and some are irrevocable. We can help you understand the advantages of the different types of trusts so you can maximize their asset-protection capabilities.
- Powers of attorney: By establishing a power of attorney, you give a trusted person the authority to make important decisions regarding your financial affairs or health care-related matters.
- A living will: A living will gives clear direction to your loved ones and doctors regarding the types of treatment you would like to receive and decline in certain medical scenarios.
No two estate plans are the same. We are here to tailor an estate plan to your unique needs and wishes.
