Wills and Trusts

Tim and Mark Murphy have extensive experience drafting estate plans and administering them after the death of a loved one.  Mishell Sander served as the head probate clerk for Ray County, Missouri for six years where she gained in-depth experience and training that she uses to assist our clients.  We tackle probate issues using our team approach to quickly and efficiently handle probate transfers.

To ensure that your wishes are carried out properly and smoothly upon your death, estate planning is a necessity. Tools available and useful in your estate plan include Wills, Living Trusts, Revocable Trusts, Irrevocable Trusts, Durable Power of Attorney, Beneficiary Deeds, Transfer on Death directives, and Advanced Health Directives, sometimes called a Living Will.

It can be difficult to think about what will happen to your children and property if you are no longer here to protect them. Having a proper estate plan in place can help your loved ones avoid a lengthy and painful probate process as well as ease the burden of decision-making should you become incapacitated or after you pass away. Our knowledgeable estate planning lawyers can help you draft wills, living trusts, durable powers of attorney, and other instruments to help ensure that your wishes regarding assets and medical care are expressed and carried out.
