WE DO! HAWKINS LAW PC's attorneys speak these confusing languages fluently and translate them clearly.
The ever changing tax, trust, and probate laws require attorneys to focus their energy on these subjects more intensely than ever. The Hawkins attorneys keep track of the changes and break them down for ordinary people to understand. In fact, we spend several weeks each year proposing improved statutes, studying the changing legal landscape, and teaching other lawyers how to adjust to the new laws.
Every estate plan receives painstaking attention to detail. We believe that a one-size-fits-all estate plan will not fit anyone very well. Multiple family generations find Hawkins’ awareness of multi-generational needs insightful and encouraging. Families with disabled children feel relief when they know that their wealth will bless their disabled children. Many of our clients appreciate the thousands of tax and health care dollars that have they saved because they asked us first.
Our plans help make goals more attainable and misfortunes more bearable.
