When it’s time to prepare your estate, administer a trust, initiate probate or arrange a guardianship, you can rely on 
Hanshaw Kennedy Hafen, LLP for trusted and prudent legal advice and guidance.

Our attorneys provide legal services for trustees, individuals, families and executors of estates in the jurisdictions of Collin, Denton, Dallas, and Tarrant counties and towns throughout the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. We help our clients meet their goals for mapping out asset protection, future distribution of assets, personal care and the well-being of loved ones.

Our estate planning attorneys believe that proper planning can greatly benefit your loved ones after your death and assist them through difficult times. However, if no plan is in place, you may expose your estate to needless estate taxes and cause the United States government to be your largest beneficiary. Even if you believe your estate will not be subject to estate taxes, having a simple estate plan will allow you to decide who will be the beneficiary of your estate, instead of Texas State law determining who will receive your assets.

From complex estates that require advanced tax planning to simple wills, Hanshaw Kennedy Hafen, LLP is ready to assist you in crafting the best solution for your needs. The estate planning services our law firm offers include:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Simple and Complex Estate Planning
  • Gift Planning
  • Health Care Power of Attorney
  • Financial Power of Attorney
  • Special Needs Trusts
  • Guardianship administration
  • Probate administration
