New Mexico Areas of Practice

Estate planning may seem like a straightforward process, but many people find themselves perplexed soon after they begin. Along with cataloguing your assets and deciding who should receive them, you’ll also need to consider things like probate, trust creation, powers of attorney, and estate taxes.

While you may not feel as though your situation warrants an attorney, it’s in your best interest to secure legal help when estate planning. Walk-In Wills combines the skill and experience of a law firm with the convenience of DIY will creation. Our attorneys consult with you to decide the best possible protections for your estate. We also make sure all of our services are priced affordably, with an easy-to-understand flat fee pricing.

Areas of Practice

We cover a broad range of estate planning processes, such as the following:

  • Wills & Trusts: The cornerstone of the estate planning process. We’ll make sure your will is valid and enforceable to help you avoid probate. We’ll also recommend the appropriate trust for your specific needs.
  • Probate: We’ll walk you through the probate process step-by-step, from how the court determines a will is valid to what will happen if a family member decides to contest your will. We’ll also go over ways to prevent your estate from being probated in the first place.
  • Power of Attorney: A power of attorney gives another person authority over financial and medical decisions in the event you’re incapacitated by illness or injury. This document is essential to safeguard your assets.
  • Special Needs Trusts: If there is a person with special needs in your care, you want to make sure your loved one continues to be cared for long after you’re gone. We’ll help you implement a special needs trust to do just that.
  • Medicaid Planning: Are you concerned about the cost for long-term care, such as nursing homes or in-home care? Medicaid planning makes sure you have access to the help you need as you grow older.
