Evansville Wills and Trusts Lawyers

Estate Planning Individualized to Your Needs

A will is an important document that protects you, your loved ones and your families' assets in the event of death. Estate planning does not have to be expensive, but it does need to be thorough.

The law firm of Johnson Carroll Norton, Kent & Goedde, P.C. has helped individuals and couples of all ages and all walks of life draft these important documents. We represent high net worth clients who need estate tax solutions, and we represent middle class families who want to set their wishes in writing and make plans for an untimely death or incapacity.

We serve Evansville and the surrounding counties of southwest Indiana. Contact us today to arrange a consultation about wills, trusts and your individualized estate plan.

Depending on your goals, your assets and the potential threats to your accumulated wealth, we can incorporate trusts and other sophisticated estate planning methods.
