Mississippi attorneys deliver comprehensive solutions to preserve your legacy
Preserving your wealth and passing it on to loved ones can be a challenge no matter the size of your estate. At Stubblefield, Yelverton & Van Uden , PLLC in Jackson, our attorneys take the time to understand your priorities. From there, we work with you to draft and implement a complete estate plan that meets those objectives as effectively as possible. By creating wills, trusts and other estate planning instruments, we provide a legal framework for setting forth enforceable instructions regarding the distribution of your property. We can help you to establish advance directives specifying your wishes regarding healthcare in the event you become incapacitated. Our attorneys also assist executors and beneficiaries throughout the probate process to ensure an estate is correctly settled.
Law firm assists with all types of wealth preservation instruments
Starting with a free initial consultation, firm lawyers advise you on how specific methods of estate planning can work for you, including:
- Wills — Our attorneys ensure that your final instructions meet all legal requirements and distribute your property as you wish. Drawing upon our experience, we can implement solutions that meet your particular needs.
- Trusts — With a trust, you can transfer assets to family members at death and spare them from the often complicated probate process. We discuss this and other aspects of creating a trust in a clear, detailed manner.
- Guardianships and conservatorships — If you are responsible for the care of a minor child or disabled adult, our attorneys assist with provisions for their care and financial support.
Our firm is committed to building long-term relationships with our Mississippi clients. Even after you’ve completed an estate plan, it is wise to review it occasionally to ensure that it accurately reflects your wishes throughout your life.
Creating advance directives to help people direct their medical care
Directing the type of medical treatment you wish to receive is an essential right, but a serious and incapacitating injury or illness could force your loved ones to have to guess about the care you would choose if you could. Our firm works with clients to prepare and execute clear instructions on their medical choices should they become unable to communicate them. You can also designate an agent to carry out your wishes by drafting a power of attorney for healthcare.
Skilled counselors guide estate representatives through probate
Many families learn too late that probate is a complicated process that can consume undue time and estate assets. If you have been designated an executor or administrator of an estate, our firm helps you navigate each step of the Mississippi probate process. We assist personal representatives with letters testamentary and manage estate assets in both supervised and unsupervised probate. With an extensive background in estate planning, we are able to gather and distribute property efficiently so that heirs receive what they are entitled to as promptly as possible.
