Experienced Estate Planning Lawyers

Estate planning is a highly personal process. You need to feel comfortable discussing your finances, your family and your long-term financial and health care wishes.

For more than 90 years, the lawyers of Huntington-based Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC, have provided thoughtful guidance and counsel to individuals throughout West Virginia during this process.

Skillfully Tailored Estate Plans That Facilitate Your Long-Term Goals

Estate planning takes thoughtful consideration. Much like a puzzle, each piece of the plan needs to work together to create a cohesive picture. While many estate plans use the same tools — such as wills or trusts — the way in which these tools fit together is what makes each plan unique.

Every family is different. Your estate plan should reflect your individual needs.

The attorneys of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC, strategically choose various estate planning vehicles to craft plans that achieve your family's individual needs. Common estate planning tools used include:

  • Wills to ensure family heirlooms are passed to the appropriate person
  • Trusts to safeguard important assets and wealth for named beneficiaries
  • Lifetime transfers that are an effective way to transfer properties to the next generation while mitigating tax liabilities
  • Living wills to enable you to stay in control of your health care and communicate your preferences regarding certain types of medical treatments
  • Medical powers of attorney that allow you to name a trusted individual to make health care decisions on your behalf in the event of your incapacitation
  • Durable powers of attorney that name individuals to manage your finances if you are no longer able to do so
  • Guardianships and conservatorships that can be created when individuals are no longer able to handle their medical or financial affairs
