ESTATE PLANNING CENTER
One of our core values at Muirhead, Gaylor, Steves & Waskom is bringing clarity to the complex and personal issue of estate planning for our clients. We hope this helps. Please contact us with any questions.
WHAT IS ESTATE PLANNING?
You work hard all your life to provide for and protect the people and things you love. We can help to ensure that the individuals and the organizations that matter most to you receive your legacy on the terms you desire. Planning helps everyone to be prepared well in advance and puts your mind at ease, knowing that your wishes will be carried out. An estate plan, prepared by a qualified attorney, is a thoughtful, caring gift to the people and organizations that receive your estate. Estate planning is figuring out what you have and what you wish to give, to whom, when, and how. An estate plan is important for everyone, regardless of income level or assets. Many families are shocked to find out what the real cost can be when someone dies without an estate plan.
