Preparing Authoritative Wills That Meet Your Needs
At Bateman & Bateman, P.C., in Clarksville, we are accomplished Middle Tennessee attorneys who offer knowledgeable guidance on wills and other estate planning matters. Our lawyers will guide you through the legal steps necessary to draft an effective will while integrating its terms with any other estate plans that you have. Creating a last will and testament is an important task regardless of your particular circumstances. Without an enforceable testamentary document, your wishes might not be honored and your loved ones might face problems receiving the benefits you intended. Whatever your goals, we will give you the information and support you need to emerge with a document that establishes a fitting legacy.
Our Firm Drafts, Reviews And Updates Estate Documents
With more than 80 years of combined experience, our attorneys deliver exceptional advice and service to individuals and families in Tennessee who seek assistance with:
- Drafting a will — We create wills that not only dispose of your property but also can address matters such as guardianship, charitable bequests and the appointment of an estate executor. Our lawyers have the skill and creativity to establish unique documents that conform with Tennessee law and minimize the likelihood of costly probate disputes.
- Coordinating with other aspects of an estate plan — Depending on your assets and objectives, you might prefer to have your will distribute all or most of your property. Alternatively, it could be better to employ a trust or jointly owned asset to shift legal ownership, with a will only covering what’s left over. No matter what strategy works best, we’ll make sure that the individual elements of your estate plan complement each other to give you the best program possible.
- Updating an existing document — Life changes quickly, so wills should be reviewed frequently to ensure that they still represent your final intentions. By evaluating your document and current priorities, our firm can make any necessary adjustments promptly and professionally.
An unexpected event can cause severe problems for your loved ones. Don’t put them in a position where they have to wonder about your final instructions or wait for your assets to be disposed of according to state intestacy laws. A sound last will and testament will provide security for both them and you.
