Caring For Others Through Probate And Estate Planning

Many are uncomfortable thinking about their own death or the passing of a loved one. However, countless administrative details and legal matters need to be considered by an individual drafting their will and estate plan. Organizing your assets and other things of value with help from an estate law attorney can make the probate process easier. The dispersal of assets through wills and trusts can go more smoothly with fewer expenses and less stress for mourning loved ones.

At Berkley Oliver PLLC, we can be a tremendous help with these difficult decisions. Attorney Josh Berkley or Rhonda Huddleston can ensure that your loved ones and beneficiaries receive what you have worked hard to provide. While it is essential for the elderly and those with complex finances to get their estates in order, estate planning is not merely an elder law matter. It is also important for families with young children to have an arrangement in writing in case both parents die or are incapacitated. Regardless of your estate planning and probate needs, Mr. Berkley and Ms. Huddleston can provide peace of mind to you and your loved ones.

The Scope Of Our Estate Planning

Our comprehensive services include the following:

  • Drafting last will and testaments: Along with determining who gets what, a thoughtful will includes a comprehensive list of assets and information regarding the estate.
  • Will and estate document review: A will drafted for a young family will need updating occasionally as the family grows and circumstances change.
  • Power of attorney: We can help you pick someone comfortable with decision-making and finances.
  • Living wills: We can draft a document that lets your physicians and family know what types of medical treatments you wish to have in the event you have a serious illness.
  • Medicaid and Medicare planning: We help you strategically cover expenses and protect assets in the face of rising medical costs.

  • Trusts: These are estate planning tools we use to avoid probate and generally protect assets for beneficiaries. Living wills may also be established to preserve assets.
  • Probate proceedings: We guide clients through the probate proceedings administered by the Kentucky courts, overseeing the legal dispersal of assets (even when there is a valid will) and ensuring that all applicable debts and taxes are paid.
