Wills, Trusts & Estates
Tristate Wills, Trusts, and Estate Attorneys
Many think of estate planning only in terms of end-of-life decisions, but comprehensive estate planning is much broader. In addition to transferring assets after death with wills and trusts, true estate planning includes making legal arrangements for incapacitation and asset protection at any stage of life.
Headquartered in Huntington and serving all of West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio, Jenkins Fenstermaker is home to a dedicated wills, trusts, and estate planning practice group that is passionate about helping people across the region. We work with clients to relieve their worries and lighten the burden on their families at a time of later loss.
Why Cookie-Cutter Estate Plans Don’t Work
The Internet provides wide access to legal resources to an extent previously unimaginable. With information available literally at the touch of a button, many feel empowered to take on tasks previously left to professionals. While this may work in some areas, estate planning is not one of them.
Effective estate planning requires a thorough understanding of many shifting areas of law on both the federal and state levels: tax, probate, real estate, elder, and healthcare to name a few. Our qualified estate planning attorneys spend years studying the best ways to apply those laws to client goals.
