Practice Area: Estate Planning, Probate Law & Wills
Trusted Probate Lawyer Serving Chattanooga, TN
It's never too early to start planning your estate. Your estate dictates how your assets will be handled at the time of your death, or in the unfortunate event that you become incapacitated. The experienced attorneys at Wagner & Wagner can help you plan your estate, and work with you and your family after your death to execute your wishes.
Wills, Trusts & Estate Planning
Wills and trusts work together to form the backbone of your estate plan. Wills go into effect after a person dies, designating individuals to receive their property. In drafting your will, a legal representative is appointed to carry out your final wishes regarding any property that you own. Alternatively, trusts take effect as soon as they are created, and can be used as a mechanism to distribute your property before you die or after your death. A trust can also help you avoid the distribution of your wealth via probate. Depending on your unique situation, the experienced attorneys at Wagner & Wagner can create an estate plan that works best for you and your family.
Navigating Probate Law
After a family member or loved one dies or becomes incapacitated, assets sometimes need to be managed or distributed through the legal system — a process known as probate. Working with one of our highly skilled estate and probate attorneys during the probate process will ensure that serious mistakes are not made, and the process is followed correctly. The loss of a loved one can be even harder if their estate plan isn't maintained and your rights aren't protected.
