Essential Estate Planning
Attorney in Dallas
It’s not about the size of your bank account.
When you are responsible for protecting your family and loved ones, your estate plan is one of the most important things you will ever do. It’s not about the size of your bank account. It is about having in place a comprehensive plan with the essential, legally enforceable documents needed to protect your property and loved ones if the unthinkable should happen, and you suddenly become incapacitated or die.

Estate Plan Essentials.
Knowing what is essential for your situation can be confusing. In addition to your will, your comprehensive estate plan will include essential disability documents that may be needed during your lifetime, long before a will becomes at issue. The welfare of yourself, your minor children and loved ones may suddenly depend on the existence of legally enforceable disability documents, such as a designation of guardian, financial or medical power of attorney, advance directive to physicians, or other essential document.
We make it understandable, and answer all your questions, so you can feel confident you have a comprehensive plan that is right for you and your loved ones.
No two families or individuals are alike. In a confidential consultation, Renda will learn about your goals and discuss your priorities for the welfare of your loved ones. She will explain your legal options based on your values and the dynamics of your family and loved ones. After addressing every concern, Renda will simplify it by pulling the essential pieces together into your personal estate plan that reflects your personal and family values.
Get It Right.
Renda’s attorney drafted documents are crafted to be legally enforceable and up to date on the most recent changes in Texas law. If not current or properly drafted, institutions such as banks, schools, insurance companies, hospitals, physicians and other third parties may refuse to honor guardianship documents, medical or financial powers of attorney or other essential documents.
Prior to changes in Texas law that became effective in September 2017, some banks were reluctant to honor, or to honor on a timely basis, powers of attorney intended to grant access to needed funds at critical times. Recently, one well known homeowner’s insurance company refused to honor a power of attorney because it was executed more than ten years earlier.
Nothing is more important than family and loved ones. For the peace of mind that comes from knowing your estate plan is comprehensive, reflects your personal and family values, and is legally enforceable in Texas, contact Renda today.
