Estate Planning Attorney in Texarkana
The Need For An Estate Lawyer In Texas And Arkansas
It is an accepted fact, that if you want to drive across the country from,
for instance, Arkansas to Utah, it is a good idea to have some sort of
map. You are more assured of arriving at your destination, if you know
whether you should drive East, West, North or South. If you know how much
gas you will need, have determined how much the trip will cost in money
and time and discover, in advance, the route best suited for your trip’s
goals (i.e. the scenic route or the speedy route) you may have an even
better chance at creating the trip you intended.
So it is with estate planning. With the help of a skilled attorney, such

What Is Estate Planning?
By estate planning we mean; all the assets of any worth that you own.
This could include
real estate properties, business interests, investments, insurance proceeds,
personal property and even personal effects. Most people are familiar
with the idea of a simple will. This is a document that states the “last
wishes” of a person. In today’s world, however, a “last
will and testament” may be only one option or not an entirely adequate
one. A Texarkana law firm highly regarded and respected in the area of
estate planning, may be able to offer you the comparables on how each
option might apply and help give their opinion as to what option would
be the most beneficial to you. Some of the choices to be discussed may be:
- Last will and testament,
- Revocable living trusts,
- Lifetime gifting,
- Life estates,
- Beneficiary designations
- Joint ownership.
