Estate Planning Attorney

You’ve worked hard for everything you earned throughout your life. If you are considering sharing your wealth with your children, grandchildren, or other significant people in your life the last thing you want is your money being tied up, taxed, or having to pass-through time-consuming probate court proceedings before your loved ones can receive their inheritance.   

Speaking with an experienced estate planning attorney can help your loved ones avoid unnecessary court proceedings that only serve to add expenses and stress during an already difficult time.

At Marler Law Partners, we have worked for years to help St Louis and Southeast Missouri residents preserve their financial legacy and seamlessly transition assets to their families and loved ones.

Our goal is to minimize – if not eliminate altogether – the need for your family to go through the time consuming and expensive probate process.

What Is Estate Planning?

At the most basic, estate planning is deciding what happens with your assets if you pass away. Depending on those assets putting together a plan for your loved ones or charitable organizations can vary in complexity.

Our services are broad and range from simple wills to ensuring financial accounts have a beneficiary to creating revocable and irrevocable trusts. There are a number of legal tools at your disposal to ensure a smooth transition in Missouri for your family.

With proper planning, it is possible to completely avoid probate court. However, it is important to create a plan sooner rather than later and adjust things as circumstances change.

For some, having children is the trigger that encourages them to finally consider basic estate planning. For others, it is a job change or losing a parent. Whatever your needs, as your finances and family life change over the years, it is important to plan with an experienced estate planning attorney to make sure you and your family are protected.

As your finances and assets become more diverse over the years, it will be important to review your estate plan with an experienced attorney to make sure you account for any new developments.
