Franklin Estate Planning Attorney

Add a Will & Trust to Your Estate Plan. Serving Clients throughout Nashville and Middle Tennessee.

The estate planning lawyers at Puryear, Newman & Morton, PLLC have the extensive resources and knowledge of estate law that you need to navigate the process of drafting a Will that specifies all of your wishes regarding the disposition of your property and assets after your death. Clients often ask us if they really need a Will. We tell them that without a valid Will in place when they die, their hard-earned assets can end up in the wrong hands.

Drafting a Will does not take as much time as people tend to think. It might only take a few hours to construct, depending on the size and complexity of the estate. Get in touch with our law firm today so we can discuss how you want your assets distributed and who you want to include in your will.

When you establish a Trust, you create a fiduciary relationship with a person of your choosing who will manage the assets or funds you include in the Trust. There are a variety of different trusts that you can include in your estate plan, including:

  • Living Revocable Trust
  • Irrevocable Trust
  • Special Needs Trust
  • Asset Protection Trust
  • Charitable Trust
  • Spendthrift Trust

To determine which Trust is right for your estate plan, please call (615) 933-2366 today to speak to one of our knowledgeable estate planning lawyers.
