Comprehensive Estate Planning
Preserving wealth and avoiding taxes are important, but true estate planning is about much more than that. It is about family, relationships and making a difference. It's about your future legacy and your peace of mind today. The Livens Law Firm works with individuals in Austin and throughout Texas to accomplish their legal goals.
Attorney Stephen J. Livens has more than 20 years of estate planning experience and has been a CPA in Texas for 25 years. His practice is devoted exclusively to protecting assets and reducing taxes for clients and their heirs. Mr. Livens and his staff are familiar with sophisticated vehicles and legitimate strategies to accomplish various goals. An experienced Austin estate planning attorney can help with:
- Veteran's benefits: Last year our firm successfully completed hundreds of VA applications, and we had 100 percent success on every case. We help veterans and their widows receive the support they need.
- Special needs trusts: We work with families who have special needs loved ones to address special needs trusts, letters of intent, taxation and life insurance matters.
- Medicaid: We can help prevent you from giving away your assets too early, ignoring important safe harbors created by Congress, or applying for benefits too early or too late.
A medical power of attorney designates a person (usually a spouse) and a chain of others to make health care decisions on your behalf regarding surgery, medications or other treatment. A critical but often overlooked detail is the HIPAA release granting all applicable family members access to your medical records and updates of your condition. Our estate planning package is available with an emergency ID card having 24-hour online or phone access to all these documents so that necessary care is not delayed and your wishes are crystal clear to doctors and family.
