How We Can Help
Your estate is the "stuff" you own: real estate, cars, personal property, businesses. You don't have to be rich to have an estate. Estate planning is figuring out what you want done with your property when you die. We can help ensure that your wishes are carried out when the inevitable happens.
Did you know that putting rental property in an LLC can protect you from losing your home? Did you know that formalizing your home-based business can save you money in taxes? We can help you structure your property and activities in a way that protects you, your family, and your assets.
When someone dies in Arkansas, their estate must go through probate (we can help you avoid probate by planning ahead). Usually family members don't know where to start. We can help you get through the sometimes complicated legal steps.
There are many types of trusts: revocable and irrevocable trusts, family trusts, pet trusts, charity trusts, special needs trusts, and more. We can help you determine whether you need a trust.
Medicaid is very complicated, and the laws are state-specific. If you are confused about how to apply for Medicaid and how to protect your assets, you are not alone. Let us help you navigate this ever-changing area of law.
