Establishing Comprehensive Wills In The Metro East

At Byron Carlson Petri & Kalb, LLC, we do not offer cookie-cutter estate plans. Instead, our legal team is committed to helping clients identify their wishes in a comprehensive will. Part of our focus includes helping families establish a legal guardian for their children, in the event they pass away when their kids are minors. This is a smart way for families to document their wishes and eliminate any uncertainty.

Our top priority is to help you make your wishes clear. We are available to help you identify what assets you have and who should receive them. Our firm’s St. Louis estate planning attorneys develop detailed wills that identify when your beneficiaries should receive their inheritance.

An effective will is designed to serve as your voice, leaving your family with a clear roadmap identifying how you would like your estate handled. However, there are limitations to a will. Your family will not be able to avoid the time and expense of probate with only a will. We offer additional estate planning solutions to help clients plan ahead and avoid probate.

Edwardsville And St. Louis Living Wills Attorneys Working for You

A key part of our estate planning services includes helping clients establish a living will. Known as an advance health care directive, a living will is a legal document designed to establish how individuals would like their medical care handled, in the event they become incapacitated or unable to communicate.

We are available to develop a living will tailored to your specific requests. We can document, for example, how long you would want to remain on life support with a terminal illness. Our legal team can also specify who you would like to make medical decisions on your behalf.
