A Modern Approach For Your Legal Needs

Protecting And Sharing Your Assets

Removing assets from your personal estate can shield those assets from tax liability, help you avoid probate and allow you to earmark those assets for effective and wise use, now and in the future. Creating a trust is often one of the best ways to accomplish these goals.

The attorneys of Mills Shirley, based in Galveston and Houston, Texas, have a wealth of knowledge in the area of estate planning. We can help you discover and create the estate planning instruments you need to take care of yourself, your family and the causes that are important to you. Our firm can assist you and your family with a wide variety of tools:

  • Living trusts, pet trusts and special needs trusts
  • Irrevocable trusts and testamentary trusts
  • Gift trusts or Crummey Trusts
  • Miller Trusts (for Medicaid purposes)
  • Documents for succession planning for family businesses and documents to control the disposition of your remains

Additionally, our attorneys will work with your accountants and financial advisers to help minimize your estate tax liabilities. Several of our lawyers are Board Certified in Estate Planning and Probate by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
