Cleburne Estate Planning Attorney

Granbury estate planning and probate lawyers

Face Your Future With Peace Of Mind

A good lawyer knows how to be both proactive and reactive. A proactive attorney can help minimize the possibility of legal uncertainty down the road, and a lawyer who is reactive can help clients successfully address unforeseen circumstances. Few areas of the law show the importance of these two skills more than estate planning and administration. By receiving the proper guidance when creating an estate plan, a person or family can protect their long-term financial security. By taking quick, decisive action following the death of a loved one, a family can help reduce the time, expense, and grief involved in dealing with these matters.

At Cain & Kiel Law, our Texas attorneys work to provide families with both proactive and reactive legal help as they address matters related to estate planning and administration. Whether you are looking to build your estate plan or settle your loved one's affairs with confidence, we can provide effective guidance and legal representation. People quickly discover that while our attorneys have the experience you would expect from a big firm, we make our legal practice as welcoming as possible. We know that it is never easy to talk with a lawyer, especially where personal affairs are concerned. However, we strive to ensure that our clients feel comfortable every step of the way, and we work to meet their needs and help them achieve their goals.

Estate Planning, Administration, and Litigation in Texas

Our firm offers a full array of estate planning services for those starting from scratch, as well as those whose needs have expanded or otherwise changed over the years. We help those across Johnson County and surrounding areas with:

  • Trusts and wills - A last will and testament is a foundational part of any estate plan. We can help draft and execute wills that detail how a person's final affairs should be handled. We can also assist with the creation of different types of trusts, which may be used to protect assets and ensure that they will be distributed to beneficiaries properly.
  • Living wills and health care directives - There are many cases where a person may be concerned about receiving the proper medical treatment and personal care in situations where they are unable to communicate their wishes to others. We can help create documents that will detail the types of treatment that a person does or does not want to receive, including life-sustaining treatment or other forms of care provided when a person is terminally ill.
  • Powers of attorney - For those who are concerned about making sure their wishes regarding medical treatment or financial matters will be followed, powers of attorney may be used to name someone else who will be able to make decisions on their behalf. We can assist with the creation of agreements that will apply in multiple different types of situations, including when a person is incapacitated and is unable to make decisions or communicate their wishes to others.
  • Will contests - In some cases, disagreements may arise about the terms of a will or trust, or other individuals may try to take advantage of a person who is going through this difficult time. Our attorneys can help resolve these disputes through negotiation or, if necessary, litigation. We can also help address claims that the executor of an estate has violated their fiduciary duty toward the person's beneficiaries.
  • Probate administration - Addressing a loved one's final affairs can be an emotionally turbulent and expensive process. We can provide general guidance during the probate process and, whenever possible, take the lead to remove a significant burden from our clients.
  • Estate and probate litigation - Legal disputes involving wills, trusts, and estates can be emotionally and legally complex. We always approach estate disputes in the hopes that disagreements can be resolved quickly, but we are also ready to litigate on behalf of our clients whenever the need arises.
