Alabama Estate Planning & Probate Lawyers
Wills – trusts – powers of attorney – healthcare directives
At Jim Pino & Associates, P.C., we work with clients in identifying their needs from complex estate & trust litigation to simple estate planning. We draft simple wills, and also have experience preparing testamentary trusts. We can also assist individuals with preparing durable powers of attorney and advanced healthcare directives (Living Wills) that specify the care they would like to receive should they become incapacitated.
If an estate plan was not created prior to your loved one’s death, the attorneys at Jim Pino & Associates have the experience to handle the estate in probate court. Without a detailed plan, arguments can ensue within a family over finances and particular assets. If their loved one died without that plan, a court-appointed administrator will review and gather up the assets of the deceased, pay any debts or obligations, and distribute the remaining assets to those deemed as beneficiaries.
We also assist clients with probating the will of their loved one. However, even the most detailed of wills can still result in a will contest. Our firm has represented those who have contested the will and those who are defending the validity of the document.
