Legal Help with Your Estate Planning & Probate Matters
When a person dies without a will, their assets are distributed by the state of Texas in a manner that might not be what they prefer. A Denison lawyer from our office works with clients to prevent that from happening and also to think ahead and deal with potential issues that may arise at the end of one’s life. Important decisions have to be made on questions like who gets power of attorney. Is a trust the best way to distribute assets to heirs after death? If so, what type of trust?
Asking and answering these questions can be difficult, but a good lawyer is there to think of them now, while the client is still healthy and able to advocate for themselves. Wills and other documents associated with estate planning are the means to do that.
Business Entity Formation & Operation
The launching of a business venture can be an exciting time. It’s also a time when important decisions have to be made as to the legal structure of the enterprise. The state of Texas offers entrepreneurs several options for how they want to set up their business. Each choice has different implications for taxes, liability, and the paperwork that needs to be filed with the state government in Austin. The Law Office of Brett L. Evans has the background to offer clients counsel on what decision is best for them, and then continue working with the client on compliance.
In probate, the assets of a deceased person are formally distributed to the beneficiaries. This process involves hearing potential disputes over the validity and enforceability of the will. Our Denison attorney works with clients to draft wills that are less likely to be subject to dispute and to craft solutions that might avoid probate altogether. We can also provide counsel to heirs who are going through the probate process after a loved one has passed away.
Real estate law covers everything from residential and commercial lease agreements to the process landlords must follow in evictions to working with clients on the document exchange that goes on when a transaction is made. Real estate is attractive to investors, but the body of law that undergirds those investments is exceptionally complex. We deal with the complexities so our clients can focus on what it takes to make their investment a success.
