Lebanon Estate Planning Attorneys Protect Your Family’s Future

Skilled assistance for administration and probate in Tennessee

Estate planning as a concept can be a bit overwhelming. We do not like to think of the end of our lives, and most people associate the creating of wills and trusts with exactly that. But estate planning is truly about protecting the people we love, the businesses we helped to build and the organizations we support. At Lowery, Lowery & Cherry, PLLC, we provide comprehensive legal services to clients who want peace of mind. When it is time to put your affairs in order, our skilled Lebanon estate planning lawyers can help you plan for the future.

How estate planning works

When we pass away our “estate,” meaning our property and assets, must be addressed and passed on to those who would inherit them. During the probate process, creditors, those to whom you owe money, may make claims on your property which need to be resolved. This is why estate planning is so crucial; without a will or other estate planning device, your property may not go where or to whom you wish. At Lowery, Lowery & Cherry, we help our clients plan for the future through the creation of:

  • Wills
  • Advance medical directives (sometimes known as living wills) for clients who may become incapacitated
  • Guardianship for minor children or incapacitated adult children
  • Irrevocable and revocable trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Charitable giving and contributions, such as scholarship funds or lump-sum donations
  • Powers of attorney documents
  • Succession planning strategies for business owners and shareholders

Because the administration of an estate can involve complex tax considerations, such as estate and inheritance taxes, our estate planning attorneys will work with your tax professional to keep as much of your estate in the hands of your loved ones, as opposed to going to the state itself, as possible.

In cases where there is no will, where the will is challenged, or where creditors make claims against the estate, the attorneys of Lowery, Lowery & Cherry put their considerable experience to work for you. We are well-known in Lebanon and throughout Tennessee as formidable litigators who are unafraid to take on complex cases. Should probate litigation become necessary, you can rest assured that we will continue to fight for your best interests.
