Birmingham Estate Planning Attorney

If you and you and your spouse should unexpectedly die, who will care for your minor children? Do you have a plan that will protect the proceeds of your life insurance policies and the assets of your estate for their future needs? If not, you need to contact an experienced estate planning attorney to draft a plan that will protect your life’s work for your children.
If you have children, you know how expensive it is to raise them. Should the unthinkable happen, you need a solid plan to ensure that your choice of guardian will have adequate funds to raise your children in the manner you would without affecting your chosen guardian’s standard of living.
Let experienced Birmingham estate planning attorney Adrian B. Dunning help you make a plan to  ensure that your choice of guardian will have the funds necessary to care for your children until they reach the age of majority while safeguarding the majority of your assets for their college education and beyond.

If you have grandchildren, you may have different concerns. More grandparents are finding themselves grandparents of children whose parents have divorced. They may want to leave assets for the benefit of their grandchildren but have concerns about how the parent or step-parents may use those assets. An experienced Birmingham estate planning attorney can draft a plan that will preserve assets for your grandchildren.

Charitable Gifts

One of the most effective ways to provide funding for charities is by providing gifts in a last will and testament. If you are willing to leave at least five thousand dollars ($5,000.00) to a charity in your will, I will prepare your last will and testament at a reduced rate of $200 per will. This offer does not include tax planning or trusts.
