Protecting Your Legacy

When you plan your estate, you are giving your loved ones a great gift. Even if you don't have a lot of wealth to pass on to the next generation, when you have a will and other estate planning documents in place, you make a difficult transition much easier for them after you are gone.

Some aspects of estate planning can go into effect during your lifetime, as well, allowing you to protect yourself and your property, as well as achieving many other goals.

At Perry Law Firm, LLC, in Gulfport, Mississippi, we help people draft estate planning documents such as:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Living trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Medical advance directives

When you are our client, we develop an estate plan that meets your needs and goals. Some of our plans are relatively simple, some are complex. The most important thing is for a plan to express the client's wishes, and to give those wishes legal authority. With that in mind, we develop plans that will stand up to legal scrutiny years or even decades into the future so that they can protect assets, provide for loved ones and leave a legacy that will last.

Skilled In Probate

When a person passes away, their estate must pass through probate. This is a legal process that distributes the estate to the person's heirs, under the guidance of a probate court. This, of course, takes time and money, and those funds come out of the estate, leaving less for the intended beneficiaries.

We help many clients protect their assets and maximize their legacies with the use of trusts and other tools that allow much of their property to bypass probate so that more of their wealth goes to the people they love.

We also help executors and other types of clients with the many details of moving an estate through probate. This includes filing paperwork, meeting deadlines, preparing taxes and resolving disputes.
