Estate Planning

Gill Ragon Owen provides estate planning for individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life. Every client is a completely unique individual with their own financial circumstances and needs. But whether your estate is large or small, complex or simple, you need to have a proper estate plan in place, including:

  • Revocable Trust
  • Will
  • Power of Attorney

And if you own a closely-held or family business, you should incorporate a succession plan into your estate planning to avoid turmoil and in-fighting.

Even if all you have to your name is your house and your checking account, you should consider an estate plan to avoid probate, which can tie up your assets and prolong the legal process for your heirs. In the worst cases, probate can also incur fees that eat into the inheritance you left behind, resulting in the state seizing all of your property.

Our seasoned and compassionate estate attorneys work closely with you to map out a plan that ensures your legacy is protected and distributed in accordance with your wishes. 

Estate Planning Practice Areas

Gill Ragon Owen’s estate planning practice areas include:

  • Revocable trusts
  • Wills
  • Power of Attorney
  • Trust and probate administration
  • Estate disputes and litigation
  • Elder care planning
  • Asset protection
  • Special needs trusts
