Wills & Estates

Will and Estate Planning

Planning your estate is one of the greatest gifts you can give your family. Anyone who has had a close relative die without an estate plan knows the stress those left behind face without a roadmap. For young families there is the additional concern of expressing your wishes for both the financial care and nurturing environment for your children in the event of an unexpected death.

Planning your estate takes more than filling in forms downloaded from the Internet. Terrell Law Office provides consultations prior to drafting any documents to learn your wishes. Stephen Terrell brings years of experience to the discussion, and he will give you advice on how to best accomplish your directives. This includes options such as transfer on death deeds, payable on death accounts, durable powers of attorney and testamentary trusts.

Death ends a life, not a relationship.
