Palestine Estate Planning Lawyer

East Texas Probate Lawyer

Many people are hesitant to talk with a lawyer about estate planning. However, a well-crafted estate plan can offer lasting benefits to both you and your family. Your estate plan will clearly outline how your assets will be distributed upon your death. An estate plan can also provide guidance to your loved ones in case you are unable to care for yourself.

At the Law Offices of Terry M. Thorn, we help individuals and families throughout East Texas prepare for their future by drafting estate plans. We also handle probate, estate administration and estate litigation. If you have a question related to estate planning, contact our firm today.

Most people understand that they need a will. A will is only one part of the protection that an estate plan can provide. We are able to prepare every kind of estate planning document, including the following:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living trusts
  • Family limited partnerships (FLP)

Our firm also handles guardianships. For instance, if a loved one cannot care for him or herself, and he or she does not have a power of attorney, we can ask the court to appoint you as a legal guardian.

Palestine Estate Planning Attorney

When someone passes on, family members can be left trying to figure out exactly what to do next. If you were named the executor of someone's will, I can guide you through the probate process. If a loved one dies without a will, I can help the family with the estate administration process.

Terry M. Thorn has practiced law since 1977 and has represented numerous parties in will contests. If you have questions about the validity of a will, or if a family member is contesting the provisions of a will, our law firm is available to represent clients in will contests. Will contests often involve questions of undue influence, or whether or not the deceased had the capacity to make a will. We will take a close look at the facts of the case and protect your rights in litigation.
