Your trusted estate planning lawyer.
Empowering your legacy for today and tomorrow, keeping you out of court and out of conflict.
Your Trusted Estate Planning Lawyer In Portland, Sumner County, and throughout Tennessee
At The Life and Legacy Law Center PLLC, our Gallatin-based estate planning law firm guides you to do the right thing by the people you love now, and will be there for you and for them when you cannot be.
Whether you have a lot of money or a little, keeping you out of court and out of conflict is our job. We make estate planning easy and effective, and we keep it as affordable as possible.
Proper estate planning helps you organize who gets what after you pass, whether you are concerned with charitable giving to the church or organization of your choice, ensuring the deeds of your properties are assigned correctly, and even if you have ongoing guardianship needs for someone in your family. But, even while you are living, establishing a current medical power of attorney, and a power of attorney can help ensure you get the care you need in case of incapacitation.
Our tools to help our Portland estate planning clients include Wills, Trusts, Asset Protection and other methods we can discuss when you meet with us. Plus, we understand that sometimes you have an heir that may not be capable to shepherd the funds you may pass along to them in the way that you desire. We have a tool for that too.
We guide you to leave a true legacy.
With our life and legacy planning model, we help you confidently make legal and financial decisions so you know you have a plan to keep everyone you love out of court and out of conflict after you pass.
Kids Protection Planning
We guide you to ensure your kids (and the money you leave behind for them) are taken care of by the people you want in the way you want no matter what, without court interference.
Asset Protection Planning
We help you keep everything you have created and earned safe from creditors and other threats to your security, for your family now and for many generations into the future.
Our Unique Promise
How You hire us
We are building relationships, not documents. For that reason, we help you organize your financial life and legacy goals before we get hired, ensuring our work is on the full picture of what matters most.
What we Protect
The assets most often lost between generations are intangible. Our personalized process ensures everything from your values to your voice are protected during your life and for generations to come.
How We Plan
Every estate plan is unique, driven by your personal relationships and risk factors. We work with you to map out the most likely scenarios for you, and plan for each as life changes.
WHAT YOU SEE
You will know what you pay and what you are paying for at every step of our relationship. We offer a “no surprise” promise, ensuring transparency so we stay on the same side of the table, every step of the way.
How We Deliver
The majority of estate plans are left unfinished and unsigned. We help you mitigate the biggest risk in legacy planning – procrastination – by making it easy to make decisions and solidify legal documents as they are needed.
What You Can Trust
One-and-done estate plans are a recipe for failure. We build lifetime relationships of trust with you so that your financial and legal decision making evolves at the speed of life, elevating meaning and purpose in every season.
