At Halcomb Singler, LLP, we are proud to serve our neighbors in Zionsville, Indiana. Partner Erika Singler is a proud resident of the Village of Zionsville, and is active in the Zionzville Village Residents Association, and volunteers at the Zionsville Farmers’ Market.

Everyone should meet with an attorney to discuss setting up a will and/or a will and a trust, which is often referred to as estate planning.  Many Zionsville residents have worked long and hard to amass significant assets.  It may be your desire to avoid the probate process, or to minimize exposure to estate taxes, or simply to facilitate the smooth transfer of assets after death.  In any event, it’s imperative to speak with an experienced estate planning attorney about how your personal objectives can be reached through careful estate planning.  An estate planning attorney can advise not only about how to best effectuate those wishes, but also provide insight regarding selection of a personal representative and trustee, health care representatives and general power of attorney appointments, if applicable.

At Halcomb Singler we realize that family relationships are often just as important as accumulation of assets to estate planning.  It is exceedingly important to discuss whether there are any divorces, step-children, family members with special needs, substance abuse or alcohol abuse problems, family members that are estranged, and many other possible family complications that may make your situation especially complex.

There are many reasons that a trust may be a more suitable estate planning tool for specific situations.  We understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to estate planning.  Your needs may range from a very simple will to a complex multi-layered trust.  Greg Halcomb meets with clients to, first and foremost, find out about their family dynamics, the nature of their assets and their desires prior to crafting a uniquely personalized estate plan.  The attorney fees for estate planning are flat fees that are usually quoted at the end of the initial consultation, rather than a dollar amount charged by the hour.

If you live in Zionsville, or any other area in central Indiana and are seeking counsel in estate planning, estate administration or probate, or bankruptcy, please do not hesitate to contact Halcomb Singler, LLP at (317) 575-8222.
