Our estate planning and probate practice group includes attorneys who are Certified Public Accountants, attorneys that have LLM (Masters in Taxation) degrees, and one attorney who is named as a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. Several of our estate planning and probate attorneys sit as Special Judges in the Probate Court of Shelby County, Tennessee, are consistently named Best Lawyers by their peers locally, regionally and nationally, and have published articles in various publications on a number of estate planning and probate topics.
Additionally, Glankler Brown’s estate planning and probate attorneys are regularly involved in professional activities and speaking engagements such as lecturing at continuing legal education seminars in the areas of tax, probate and estate planning, and are active participants in the tax and probate sections of the American Bar Association and the Tennessee Bar Association, the Estate Planning Council of Memphis, the Planned Giving Council of Memphis, and other professional, national and community organizations associated with estate planning and probate work. The attorneys within our estate planning and probate practice groups possess both the experience and knowledge to not only assist clients with developing basic estate plans and probating simple estates, but also have the expertise to advise clients with regard to very complex estate planning and probate matters.
Our estate planning attorneys frequently assist clients with extensive estate planning issues while always personalizing their work to address the specific situation and needs of each client. This work includes, but is not limited to, business succession planning, charitable and family giving, will, trust and other estate planning document drafting, life insurance matters, comprehensive tax planning including the reduction and elimination of tax liability, entity creation and addressing numerous other estate planning issues.
