Eric M. Bittner, Attorney at Law believes that everyone should plan for the future through effective estate planning. When you come to me for help, I carefully explain all of your options and the effect that they will have on your estate. Since 1995, I have worked with clients in the Clarksville area to help them create plans that work for their unique situation. I also assist families with probate after the death of a loved one by guiding the personal representative of the estate through each step of the process.
Regardless of how much property and how many assets you own, an estate plan provides cost-effective and practical benefits while giving you peace of mind. Using a variety of tools, I help clients ensure that their assets will be distributed or used in the way that they want after they die. My experience assisting clients in a variety of estate planning areas includes:
Estate planning is also the right time to create a living will, which states your wishes regarding end-of-life treatment, as well as powers of attorney, which appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf if you become unable to communicate. I work to ease your worries about the future by helping you plan ahead.
Before relatives can inherit property, the decedent’s will must usually go through probate, a legal process in which the will is validated, which may take six months or more. I help the personal representative of the estate by providing skilled, knowledgeable and cost-effective estate administration services. I work with you through the entire process of probating and settling the estate, including:
Additionally, when a will or trust is challenged, I represent clients in all matters of probate litigation. I regularly help clients deal with factors affecting the validity of a will or a trust, such as undue influence or questionable will changes.
Whether you want to ensure that your family is taken care of once you are gone or you are working to settle the estate of a loved one who has passed away, I am dedicated to helping you find solutions that work for your family.
