At Palmer & Slay, PLLC, we are dedicated to using our combined talents and experience to provide a number of legal services to clients in the Jackson/Brandon area and throughout Mississippi. We believe our job as attorneys is to help our clients plan for the future in ways that are thoughtful and cost-effective. It gives us great satisfaction to know that those we serve sleep more soundly knowing that we have crafted their estate plans to protect their assets and their loved ones, prepare for their possible incapacity, or guided them through the probate or administration process.
At Palmer & Slay, we listen carefully to each of our clients because we know that in order to be helpful we have to fully understand not only your finances and families, but your unique needs, goals, and concerns. From the time we first meet you, we are trying to establish a long-term relationship and are well-aware that this will only happen if we earn your trust. We make it a point to come up with innovative solutions to problems you’re aware of as well as to prepare you for contingencies that may not have crossed your mind.
We keep current with any new laws that affect our practice areas so that we are never caught off-guard. We also look for new ways to help you plan for the consequences of aging. The customized estate plan we come up with will protect your accumulated assets from unnecessary taxation and protect the most vulnerable members of your family from losing government benefits like SSI or Medicaid.
In a great many cases, we will be able to assist you in avoiding the time-consuming and costly process of probate by setting up trusts to hold your assets. We can set up one or more trusts to suit your particular needs, including: revocable trusts, trusts for minors, marital trusts, spendthrift trusts, and even trusts for pets. Each type of trust has a special purpose. For example, a spendthrift trust will allow you to select a trustee to dole out assets to a financially irresponsible loved one as needed so that your funds will be helpful for as long as possible.
