IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19, LEGACY COUNSEL’S ATTORNEY AND STAFF ARE WORKING REMOTELY. WE ARE AVAILABLE TO CONTINUE TO SERVE YOU VIA ZOOM VIDEOCONFERENCING.
What We Do
At Legacy Counsel, we take our responsibility to prepare families for whatever lies ahead very seriously. We believe that every family is unique and deserves an individualized estate plan designed especially for them.
Our key practice areas include:
Probate & Trust Administration
Packages & Fees
Estate planning plays a crucial role in creating plans for your personal and professional assets. Our experienced estate planning lawyer can help you navigate through the complex areas related to estate planning to develop an estate plan that aids in asset protection. If you have minor children, ask about our innovative Kids Protection Plan.
Probate & Trust Administration
Probate is a court process set in place to settle an estate after the owners’ passing. If the owner had a trust, settling the estate involves a non-court process controlled by the trust terms. Estate planning and administration go hand in hand to ensure the process is fair and beneficial. We can help resolve any claims against the estate and resolve asset distribution and other related issues.
“The experience was great! The step-by-step process greatly assisted us in getting our estate in order. What a relief to know that this will minimize the stress our children will not have to go through after we pass.”
“Legacy Counsel services are Excellent! They worked with my family to develop a Wills and Trust Plan for me just before I left to go to college.”
“My experience with Legacy Counsel in settling my mom’s estate after her passing fully met my expectations and beyond. Communication was timely and complete. Fees were clearly defined up front and never changed. Attorney Braswell was compassionate and very easy to talk to. I highly recommend their services.”
“We worked with Gwendolyn Powell Braswell on legal matters after my father passed away. Gwendolyn was very helpful and guided us through the steps we needed to take in this difficult time. She was always very professional and quick to respond to any questions we had. We would highly recommend working with Gwendolyn for any legal needs!”
