Scroggins Law Group, PLLC is a full-service family law firm, and that means that we help our clients prepare for their futures and their families. This includes offering our clients effective estate planning services that exceed the preparation of basic forms that other law firms complete by simply typing in the names of their clients and family members. We do not employ such a cookie-cutter approach, and instead provide customized and comprehensive estate plans that result from often several meaningful meetings allow us the ability to tailor a plan to suit our client’s best interests.
Why Do I Need an Estate Plan?
Estate plans are not just for the rich and famous. Even the middle-class benefit from a customized estate plan that provides for the distribution of property and the care of their families upon their death. So even if a family does not have enough resources to worry about wealth preservation strategies that minimize the impact of estate taxes, every mother and father should be worried about who will take care of their children when they pass away. We can help you provide for the distribution of assets to your loved ones, and to appoint guardians for your children who will take care of them and manage the assets that you left to them upon your death. A basic will might do the job, but through meeting with you we can determine whether your family would best benefit from a trust. Whatever estate planning vehicle is decided upon can and should be revisited over time to make sure that its purposes are achieved as your circumstances and those of your family change. Our commitment to our clients is organic, not transactional.
We offer a variety of estate planning tools and strategies to serve our clients’ interests, and we are committed to helping you choose the right one for you and your family. These tools and strategies include:
- Complex Estate Plans
- Wills and Living Wills
- Lady Bird Deeds
- Transfer on Death Deed
- Trusts, including Living Trusts, Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts, and Charitable Trusts
- Durable Powers of Attorney
- Health Care Directives
- Charitable Trusts
- Family Limited Partnerships
- Gifting Strategies
- Asset Protection Strategies
- Business Succession Planning
- Insurance Planning
- Planning for Special Needs Children
We often use more than one of these tools to meet our client’s specific needs.
