Estate Planning

Mobile and Baldwin County Estate Planning Attorneys

Brackin, McGriff & Johnson's Estate Planning practice includes estate planning, estate tax and gift tax planning, business succession planning for closely-held businesses, probate, trust and estate administration, and elder law.  Our practice includes the implementation of complex estate plans for clients, such as the drafting of various types of wills, ranging from simple to more sophisticated wills; numerous types of revocable and irrevocable trust agreements and family partnership agreements. 

Wills, Powers of Attorney & Living Wills

In planning your estate, there are several elements to consider, including a will, a power of attorney, a living will or health-care proxy (sometimes called a medical power of attorney).  Depending on your circumstances, a trust may also make sense for you.  Our estate planning attorneys also assist in the preparation of the numerous types of trust documents, including living trusts, marital deduction and generation-skipping transfer tax trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts, trusts designed for facilitating gifts to minors, and specialty trusts. 

When putting together a plan, you must be mindful of both federal and state laws governing estates.

Your Estate

Having your estate in order protects your family from unnecessary legal issues and possible extra taxes when you pass away.  Our probate attorneys regularly act as counsel to trustees and administrators of large estates, assisting fiduciaries with fulfilling their duties, including representation of personal representatives in administering estates. We also assist trustees in the fulfillment of their duties, including funding trusts, distributing trust assets, interpreting trust instruments, and redrafting and amending trusts. 

Our probate attorneys also represent clients in will contests and other testamentary disputes, and represent heirs and devisees in overseeing the administration of estates in which they have an interest. 

Brackin, McGriff & Johnson.'s estate planning attorneys have significant experience representing clients in all aspects of tax, corporate and business planning. We regularly advise clients with respect to their general business planning, including the choice of entities in which to conduct business as well as advising and representing clients in merger and acquisition transactions. We also have a particular emphasis in the employee benefits area including the design, implementation and other aspects of pension, profit sharing and other qualified plans. Our attorneys also spend a considerable amount of time advising clients on non-qualified deferred compensation plans, incentive stock option plans and other types of employee benefit plans.
