Shreveport Wills And Trusts Lawyer

Everyone needs a will. There is no way to guarantee that your assets will pass to the proper beneficiaries without one. Every family is different, and the unique makeup of your family will determine the estate planning decisions you make.

At the office of Carl Henry Franklin, Attorney at Law, in Shreveport, Louisiana, we will need to understand your family's situation in order to ensure that your assets are divided properly among your intended beneficiaries. We are here to assist you in drafting your estate plan.

A complete estate plan is more than a will. It often contains a collection of several documents, including a trust, living will and power of attorney. A living will is necessary for making certain that your health care wishes will be respected. Living wills are also referred to as health care directives or health care proxies.

Types Of Trusts

There are several types of trusts. A revocable trust is a trust that you can revise in the future if circumstances change. An irrevocable trust cannot be changed once established. Testamentary trusts are included in the will.

In order to determine which type of trust is best for you, our Bossier City estate planning attorney, Carl Henry Franklin, will sit down with you and learn about your family and make a recommendation. You will not need to worry about the details — leave those to us.

Many of our clients have land, insurance, oil and gas that they want to put into a trust. Our Louisiana lawyers are experienced in real estate and property law, which gives them the background they need to handle such complex cases.
