Estate Planning Attorney with Wills, Trusts and Directives
Although some people find it a difficult topic to discuss, it’s both important and helpful to take the time to talk with a wills lawyer in San Antonio about sharing your wishes with family and friends. It need not be uncomfortable or stressful to get your affairs in order. An experienced wills lawyer can help you consider:
- Who should care for your children if you are not able to do so?
- Who do you want to inherit your possessions?
- How can you ensure your children have the financial support they need in your absence?
- Who should pay your bills or make medical decisions for you if you are incapacitated?
- What kind of medical care do you want—or not want—if you are in a critical medical situation or at the end of life?
A properly prepared plan, with a will or trust and other advanced directives, can communicate your wishes on all of these matters—and can do even more.

San Antonio Wills, Trusts and Directives
A legal will is imperative to ensure that your legacy is preserved and your loved ones are provided for in accordance with your wishes. If you die without a legally valid will, the state will determine who inherits your property. The state’s determination may not reflect your wishes. An effective will can also save your loved ones time and money.
While a trust is not for everyone, it can be an invaluable tool for families concerned about the tax consequences of their estate. It allows money to be professionally managed, to be distributed at a later date when certain criteria have been met, and it shelters money from excess taxation.
