Helping Missouri Clients Protect Their Assets and Legacies

Many people believe that because they don’t have large financial assets, they don’t need to have a comprehensive estate plan in place.  Creating a will or trust can protect what you do have, such as a house, and allow it to pass to your heirs and beneficiaries after your death.  Though it may be an uncomfortable topic, you should take the time to plan for what will happen in the event of your incapacitation or death.


It is essential that you have a will in place.  This is especially important for people who have children.  In your will, you can designate how your assets will be distributed and how your estate will be handled after your death.  If you have minor children, you can dictate how they are to spend the money and even if access will be granted before a certain age.  Guardianship of any minor or disabled children can also be detailed in a will.


A trust is an effective way of protecting your assets and allowing future generations to benefit from what you worked so hard to accumulate during your lifetime.  We can help you through the process of setting up a trust, designating a trustee, and funding many different types of trusts, including:

  • Living trust
  • Pour-over trust
  • Revocable trust
  • Irrevocable trust
  • Special needs trust
  • Charitable trust
