Woodville Estate Law Attorney

Helping Texas Families Plan For The Future, No Matter How Big The Estate

Many people, understandably, do not like to think about estate planning. However, that does not mean it is a subject that you should avoid. I am J. Michael Risinger, and I understand how difficult the estate planning process is, which is why I dedicate a large amount of my time to helping families responsibly plan for the future.

There is almost no part of estate planning that I cannot address. I have the knowledge, experience and resources to help you with your most complicated estate planning requests. From my office in Woodville, Texas, I can help you with:

  • Wills
  • Trusts, including complex trusts designed to shield your beneficiaries from a large estate tax bill
  • Durable power of attorney and medical power of attorney designations
  • Health care directives
  • Probate
  • Guardianships

I partner with a lawyer in Dallas who handles nothing but multimillion-dollar estates. What this means for you in the Woodville area is that there is someone who can handle more than just a simple will if necessary. I will leave no stone unturned in making sure you have the most comprehensive estate plan possible.

Experienced Probate Attorney In Tyler County

One of the reasons estate planning is so important for everyone is that, if something happens to you, it will make the probate process easier on your beneficiaries. If you are the executor of a will, I can help through the entire estate administration process. I will fill out all the necessary forms and represent you in court.

Additionally, if you wish to contest a will, I can effectively represent you. Children of the decedent may challenge a will if a new one appeared right before a parent’s death. I can examine your parent’s mental stability at the time of the will signing and have a handwriting expert analyze the signature.

However, it is never too early to start the estate planning process. Making sure your plan is in place before anything happens to you will reduce the chances of a probate judge making decisions for you. Call the Law Office of J. Michael Risinger at 409-200-2159 to schedule a free consultation.
