Accomplished Attorney Helping Clients in Rankin, Madison, & Hinds County and Throughout Mississippi With Estate Planning
Estate planning isn’t just for couples in their golden years. Adults at any life stage can benefit from having a thorough estate plan in place. A solid estate plan isn’t just about determining how your property and assets will be divided after you pass away. It’s also about issues concerning your health care wishes and financial well-being in the event that you’re unable to handle such affairs yourself.
By using legal tools like wills, inter-vivos trusts, powers of attorney, and advance health directives—and getting the help of a quality estate-planning attorney—you can protect your estate against unnecessary taxation and probate, and safeguard your dignity regardless of what the future may hold.
Assisting With Your Probate
We also represent both personal representatives and family members in probate court and during will contests or other litigation related to estate administration matters. A personal representative named in a will accounts for the assets of the deceased, pays off debts to creditors and distributes the remainder of an estate among the decedent’s beneficiaries. By working with a skilled estate administration attorney like Rusty Williard, a personal representative can reduce or even avoid the expensive and time-consuming probate process. Mr. Williard can also represent family members or other interested parties during the estate process and in contested matters such as will contests. If you believe that the will of a recently deceased family member may be fraudulent or otherwise compromised, contact our Brandon office today.
At the Law Offices of Rusty Williard, we provide dependable and affordable estate-planning services for the State of Mississippi, including assistance with wills, testamentary trusts, inter-vivos trusts, powers of attorney, guardianships, conservatorships, and other estate-planning matters.
