Kane & Crowell represents clients when a loved one has passed away leaving an estate in need of probate. We also assist in Estate Planning such as Wills, Trusts, Health Care Powers of Attorney, Financial Powers of Attorney and Living Wills. We can also set up a conservatorship or guardianship when necessary to protect a loved one.
Estate planning is one of the most important steps any person can take to make sure that their final property and health care wishes are honored, and that loved ones are provided for in their absence. Though often overlooked or put off in favor of more immediate concerns, a comprehensive estate plan can resolve a number of legal questions that arise whenever anyone dies: What is the state of their financial affairs? What real and personal property do they own? Who gets what? Does a personal guardian need to be appointed to care for minor children? How much tax will need to be paid in order to transfer property ownership? What funeral arrangements are appropriate?
Should you have any questions, feel free to contact Kane & Crowell at (615) 784-4800. With six full time attorneys and three paralegals, there is always someone available to take the time to speak with you.
