Houston Will & Estate Planning Attorneys
Developing Complex Estate Plans & Asset Protection Vehicles
While many people intend to place all assets in trusts to avoid probate, the fact is that some assets are nearly always going to fall outside of a trust for one reason or another. At Hendershot Cowart, P.C., we advise all our clients to update their wills every few years or every time there is a change in family structure or assets.
If you need assistance, our Houston estate planning lawyers are happy to help.
