Handling All of Your Tennessee Probate Concerns
None of us like to think about probate and what happens when someone dies, but there are times in life when it is inevitable. When those times come, it can be helpful to have a lawyer you know and trust to guide you through the legal process with compassion.
At the Law Office of Jennifer Sheppard, I understand how difficult probate can be for you and your family. That is why I am dedicated to helping my Tennessee clients through all of their probate concerns, from estate administration to obtaining a guardianship or conservatorship.
Protecting the People You Love
It can be hard to watch the people you care about most lose their ability to care for themselves. Whether you are worried about an elderly parent or another loved one who has fallen ill, a conservatorship can give you peace of mind that their affairs will be taken care of properly.
A conservator will have the power to make financial and health decisions on behalf of your loved one. I can help you petition the court to appoint you as the conservator. I am also very experienced serving as a conservator.
Planning for the Future
I am also available to help you plan for the future. I can draft wills, trusts, living wills and powers of attorney. Whether you are concerned that a family member does not have these documents, or you need them yourself, I will listen to your needs and create an estate plan to fit the situation.
When a Loved One Passes Away
If you have been named an executor of a loved one’s estate, recently lost a family member who did not have a will, or are involved in a will contest, I can guide you through the legal process.
Probate is often complicated. I will take the time to truly listen to you and help you move forward. Call 615-338-6032 or contact me online to schedule a free consultation to discuss your probate concerns. We can meet at my Nashville office, your home, the hospital or nursing home.
