Probate & Estate Planning

Planning for the Future of Alabama's Citizens

Thinking about the future can be frightening. Some people are afraid they will not have money for long-term health care. Some people do not want their estate to go through probate after they die. Some people do not know what needs to be included in an estate plan, and do not know where to start looking.

Whatever your reasons for not having an estate plan, it is important to know there is someone who can help address your concerns. I am John F. Brasfield, Attorney at Law, and I have been helping clients throughout Tuscaloosa and West Central Alabama with probate and estate planning matters since 1996.

Estate Planning for Families and Seniors

Many people have worked hard their whole life to protect their children and their loved ones. I work with clients to help make sure that protection lasts even after they have deceased. I help clients draft all the necessary estate planning documents, including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts and family trusts
  • Advance health care directives (living wills)
  • Powers of attorney
  • Guardianships

I also work with seniors who are concerned about long-term health care options. I help clients plan for legal transfer of property to family members. This can hep prevent the state from seizing your property during probate.

Probating an Estate in Alabama

After a person dies, all their assets must be transferred to another person. If you are the executor or administrator, working with an experienced lawyer can help make sure this process operates smoothly. I help clients identify, valuate and distribute all the assets of a person's estate, and I help address other matters that might arise during probate.
