Estate Planning and Probate Administration

One of the most difficult things to go through is the loss of a loved one. While there is no preventing the inevitable, there is a way to plan for what is left behind on earth. The Lichtenegger Law Firm helps people prepare for the unknown by creating estate plans that take care of them during their lifetime and help provide for their loved ones upon their passing.

Building A Strong And Secure Estate Plan

Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of estate planning and can help you explore the best ways to pass your property to those you wish it to it pass to. From typical wills and trusts to living wills and powers of attorney, we work to keep you and your family secure when crisis strikes.

In addition to knowing the best ways to distribute your legacy, we offer advice to help you avoid the high costs of Missouri probate and ensure you face the least tax burden possible. Additionally, we offer a full range of estate administration services to take care of these legal procedures during such a difficult time in life.

On Your Side In Will Contests And Disputes

In the event a person executes or signs a legal document, such as a will or trust, and that person did not understand what he or she was doing, then the document may not be valid. We can help determine whether or not the person had the "capacity" to execute such important decisions, ensuring your interests are safeguarded. Whether or not someone was in capacity can have a huge impact on how their assets are distributed after their death.

This type of case does not happen every day, but we have experience and success in invalidating documents and directing the assets to the appropriate heirs and beneficiaries.
