What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning is the process of getting your affairs in order to prepare for potential mental incapacity and death. A properly prepared estate plan will let you decide the best choices for your family, such as who will handle your affairs during states of incapacity, who should receive your property and assets, and who you want to settle your final affairs.

At Stott, Hollowell, Windham & Stancil, PLLC, our estate planning team’s focus is on your individual needs to ensure that we are customizing an estate plan that is appropriate for your family. Our attention to detail, experience, and consistent adaptations to the ever-changing laws in this area will allow you to have peace of mind in knowing that your loved ones will be protected. We can also walk you or your loved ones through the confusing estate administration process.

Your estate consists of vehicles, real estate, stocks and other securities, bank accounts, and other personal property.
