Estate Planning

When we talk about estate planning at Cauble & Whittington, we are very often referring to clients’ complex estates involving businesses, multiple properties and intricate taxation issues.

We are also here to serve young couples or individuals who believe that a simple will is the extent of estate planning that they need. Upon further discussion with our attorneys, clients often discover or realize that they have special issues that deserve close examination: an inheritance, a trust, a piece of real estate, a retirement account or a family law concern.

This is why we caution people not to rely on “do it yourself” wills, but rather to consult with a knowledgeable estate planning attorney. Clients seek our experienced legal counsel regarding some of the most far-reaching decisions of their lives: how to structure a lasting legacy and ensure that their wishes are carried out after death.

Whether you want to provide for a spouse in the future, protect business assets for your children or business partner successors, support your preferred charitable causes or minimize tax liability, you can count on Cauble & Whittington, to take the time and effort necessary to prepare a will that will follow your wishes as closely as possible.
