Nashville Estate Planning Attorney

Last Will and Testament: Your Last Will and Testament serves as the guide to distributing your assets upon death. This document will name an executor of your estate, burial and funeral instructions, guardianship instructions for minor children, other final arrangements and most importantly, how to distribute your assets. A Will is a roadmap to your final wishes. Having your legal documents in place can provide you peace of mind and assurance that your estate and assets will be distributed according to your wishes. For more information on wills, give our office a call today.

Power of Attorney: A power of attorney is a legal document that grants specified powers to a representative on your behalf. Granting someone a power of attorney gives that person authority to act and sign on your behalf. For example, if you could not be present at a real estate closing you could grant a power of attorney to someone to sign your portion of the closing paperwork. There are many types of power of attorney documents such as limited, general and durable power of attorneys. For assistance in determining what document might work best for you, call our office today to talk to an experienced attorney.

Trust Litigation

A trust is a legal document, like a will, that instructs how assets are to be distributed due to incapacity or death. A trust is created by the grantors of the trust and administered by trustees. A trust will have instructions in place for successor trustees and define familial relationships and beneficiaries. A trust is different from a will as it is a legal entity. For example, real estate can be vested in the name of your trust. For more information on trusts call our office today for a free consultation.

Probate Attorney

What is Probate?

Probate is the process of admitting a last will and testament to court to distribute a deceased person’s assets and estate. When a person passes with a last will and testament, that person will designate an administrator or executor to deal with the distribution of assets. Probating a will allows this executor to be granted authorization to tend to the details of closing a deceased person’s estate. These duties include settling debts, withdrawing stocks and bonds, closing accounts, selling property, and distributing assets to beneficiaries. At Rochford Law & Real Estate Title, PLLC, our experienced attorneys can guide you through the probate process. Give us a call today to discuss your probate case.

What if there is no will to probate?

Individuals who die without a will are said to die “intestate.” When this occurs, Tennessee law dictates the flow of estate and assets to surviving family members. For assistance with an intestate death, give our office a call today.
