Nashville Estate Planning Lawyers
Clarifying The Future For The People You Love
Something usually happens in a person’s life that gets him or her thinking about the future — a new member of the family, a long trip, the death of a parent. Suddenly you realize you have responsibilities to your loved ones and the time has come to put your intentions in writing.
At Hardeman & Montgomery, we work with clients to create wills that specify what happens to your estate, and trusts that have the power and flexibility to carry out your intentions, even after you’ve gone.
Q. What Is the Most Important Thing to Know About Wills? A. That you need one.
Skillful Davidson County Will And Trust Attorneys
Making out a will is not something to be afraid of doing. Primarily, it’s just a document that directs where you want your assets to go. At Hardeman & Montgomery, we begin with a brief conversation, establishing what you want to happen, then we get to work.
The two most important aspects of a will are that it must be crystal clear and drafted in accordance with Tennessee Law. Most homemade and downloaded wills don’t pass this test. A good lawyer is alert to the special circumstances of your estate and thorough enough that your will is clear to all.
The Power Of Trusts In Tennessee
You don’t have to be a multimillionaire to benefit from having a trust. Often times, trusts are good instruments to use to avoid probate, to protect assets from creditors of beneficiaries and to simplify estate administration when you die.

Have You Made Out A Living Will?
A living will tells doctors exactly what kind of care you do and don’t want to receive if you’re terminally ill and incapacitated. Living wills must be made out before you become incapacitated.
If you are thoughtful enough about your family to make out a will, you owe it to them to make out a living will as well, so they know your wishes should that day ever come.
Have You Executed A Power Of Attorney?
Powers of attorney are vital instruments to have in your estate plan to designate a trusted individual to make health care and/or financial decisions for you in the event you are unable to make those decisions for yourself.
If you are thoughtful enough about your family to make out a will, you owe it to them to execute a Health Care and Financial Power of Attorney as well.
