Estate planning includes the preparation of a Last Will and Testament as well as other documents you may need during your life. Proper estate planning saves you and your family money and ensures that your wishes are known and followed in case of your incapacity and at the time of your death. Despite the importance of these documents, many people avoid this planning. This avoidance may be an aversion to thinking about death, or fear that the process is complicated and expensive. As experienced Austin estate planning lawyers, we address these concerns with a straightforward approach and flat fees in this practice area.
