Murfreesboro Will & Trust Attorneys
Dedicated to Preserving Your Legacy
Greed, estrangement, feuds, and even murder – we have all seen Hollywood’s dramatic productions of those stereotyped will readings. Entire families are torn apart by the division of a deceased relative’s estate.
Most of these scenarios are theatrical exaggerations to set up for a typical murder mystery plot – not based on real life. However, dividing your property can be a delicate and complex business. This process is one that can cause your family anxiety if you have not clearly outlined your decisions.
The essence of hiring an attorney for effective estate planning is preparation and protection for you and your family. This includes reparation for whatever life throws at you and protection of your property and your relationships. With a comprehensive estate plan in place from our wills and trust attorneys, you can worry less about the legal process.
Murfree & Goodman, PLLC, can support you in determining exactly what will happen to your assets upon your death. We can help give you peace of mind knowing that the potential for family conflicts has been mitigated.
A Vast Range of Wills & Trusts Legal Services
In his will, William Shakespeare left his wife his second-best bed when he died. Marilyn Monroe left her family out in favor of her acting coach. Hearing of such famous wills can give the impression that creating a will is just listing who gets what property. Your brother gets your antique stamp collection, or your daughter receives your now-vintage first automobile.
In reality, however, there are so many different types of wills and trusts. Each has their own complexities in how they are formed and enacted. It is important to hire a lawyer who can provide experienced legal advice on your will & trust options.
Our will & trust lawyers can help you and your family with services that include:
- Wills that are thorough and clearly worded
- Appointing a trustee for managing your trust
- Living wills and health care directives that put your health care choices in writing
- Powers of attorney (POA), health care powers of attorney, and other legal documents to protect your wishes
- Comprehensive trust document work, including living trusts, child trusts, and allocation of trust funds
- Special needs trusts that benefit loved ones with disabilities
- Long-term care planning
- Business succession planning
- Effective strategies related to real estate holdings and investments
- Negotiation and resolution of family conflicts to avoid trust or probate litigation
Every family situation is different, so no two estate plans should look exactly alike.

We want to help you through deliberate planning in all relevant areas of your relational and financial life.
