Estate Planning Attorneys in El Paso, TX

Do you have an estate plan yet? Our estate planning attorneys can help ensure that your estate follows your specific plan after death.

Decisions must be made on personal effects and property left behind. You have the choice to make those decisions yourself and leave a will or trust for loved ones to follow. Otherwise, if you do not create a personal, memorialized plan, Texas law will make those decisions on your behalf for those. Thus, the relevant question becomes – does your estate plan accomplish your individual goals?

Our team understands that estate planning deals with the most important issues in your life – your health and your family. Thus, whether you require an estate plan consisting of a simple will or a complex combination of estate documents, our estate planning attorneys in El Paso, Texas, can carefully attend to your unique needs and financial situation. Our team will devise a plan tailored to meet your goals. Don’t let the fate of your estate be decided by default. Contact us today to learn more about how you can protect your family’s future.

Goals Estate Planning

Some do not get an estate plan because they think the amount of their assets does not warrant one. Others may forego an estate plan because they trust their family members to do what is best when the time comes. However, estate planning is useful for everyone. Numerous benefits of even a basic estate plan must be considered before foregoing an estate plan altogether.

Respecting your final wishes.

Respecting your final wishes. Regardless of the size your estate, you’ve worked hard for what you will leave behind. You have the right to decide what happens to your real estate, money, and other assets.


Clarity. An effective estate plan reduces questions about: who is to be in charge of your estate during incapacity and after death; who should receive particular assets; and who is authorized to make health care decisions on your behalf.

Preserving valuable time and resources

Preserving valuable time and resources. Estates left without direction fall to the direction of the courts. Often, estates are tied up in legal red tape as an executor is named and then as the executor takes action. This process is often lengthy and costly. Certain estate planning techniques can reduce or eliminate excessive cost and delays.

Maintaining family relationships

Maintaining family relationships. When the time comes to for your family to make decisions about your health care, finances, and distribution of assets, emotions will run high. It can be difficult to make these decisions, and it is not uncommon for family members to struggle to decide what is best. With specific instruction from you, your family can avoid confusion and uncertainty.

Even if you aren’t sure if you need an estate plan or how to even begin.

Estate Planning Benefits

A thorough and well-tailored estate plan can give you confidence and security that your family will be in good hands. A great estate plan can also:

Plan for serious illness or incapacity

Plan for serious illness or incapacity. You can specify what kind of medical care you want should you become ill or incapacitated, and designate a trusted loved one or personal representative to make decisions on your behalf if you’re unable to make them for yourself.

Ensure your final wishes are honored

Ensure your final wishes are honored. Don’t make your family try to guess your last wishes or assume that relatives will carry out your verbal instructions once you’re gone. An estate plan lets everyone know exactly what you wanted and how it should be accomplished.

Protect your assets

Protect your assets. You can design your estate plan to shield assets from creditors or other unscrupulous parties, such as vengeful former spouses or family members who’re struggling with addiction.

Provide for your family

Provide for your family. An estate plan lets you pass assets and property to family in the way you feel is best. You can also appoint a guardian for minor children, decide how and when their inheritance will be distributed, and choose a trustee to oversee their finances until they come of age.

Reduce tax liability

Reduce tax liability. Careful estate planning can help you reduce—or even eliminate—certain estate-related tax obligations.

Minimize family conflict

Minimize family conflict. Relatives often don’t see eye to eye, and if your final wishes aren’t clearly spelled out, conflict can result.

Save your family time and money

Save your family time and money. If you don’t have the right kind of will, the probate process can be lengthy and costly. A professionally prepared estate plan can help relatives simplify—or even avoid—the probate process.

To think about the future, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to get started. Our experienced lawyers can help you examine your unique circumstances and needs, and together we can craft a plan that will protect you and your loved ones.
