What We Do   >   Estate Planning

We help our clients protect their financial and non-financial wealth

Protecting clients and their families is what we do. Combined, our Little Rock based attorneys have over 90 years of experience helping our clients protect what they have built and saved for themselves–and for generations to come. For almost every client, that means:


  • Protecting what you have for yourself during your lifetime, including:
    -Protection from potential legal judgments
    -The management of your property if you become incapacitated by persons you choose without a court supervised guardianship.
    -Insuring that your health care decisions are made by the persons you choose.
  • Protecting what you have from the cost of nursing home care
  • Passing what you have to the people and charities you care about when you are gone
  • Protecting the inheritance you leave your spouse and your heirs from divorce, lawsuits and lack of financial skill or youthful immaturity
  • Reducing the inconvenience, cost and expense of the transition

What Risks Worry You?

Each estate plan we create is designed to protect our client from the risks that threaten them. Those risks are not the same for each client family. We have developed a risk analysis tool to help you assess the risks that matter to you.


The most common risks our clients identify are:

We Have Solutions.

There are powerful and effective solutions that can reduce or eliminate each of the risks that keep you awake at night. There are more than fifty legal tools and strategies in our solutions arsenal. This is just a partial list of the solutions we commonly use to help clients protect get the protection they want:


After we get to know you and come to understand the risks that are a specific concern for you, our skilled attorneys–using some combination of those solutions–can help you put a plan in place that will give you the protection and peace of mind you want.  Because every client is unique, every plan is unique.  Our Three Step Process is specifically designed to uncover authentic concerns and then address them with solutions that will work for every client.

We are Serious About Our Mission

We read our mission statement every week at our Friday morning staff meeting.  This way, we remind ourselves why we are here and why we do what we do.  There are three very specific commitments we make to each of our clients:

Your plan will uniquely fit you. We don’t create cookie-cutter plans.
You must understand it well enough to correctly explain it to others
We must provide you with an ongoing process to monitor and maintain your plan to insure it will work when its tested

We have developed a unique Three Step Process we follow with each client that delivers on our mission.

Why I Did Not Want to Be An Estate Planner

Our partner Stan Miller talks about how he was completely turned off by estate planning when he was at Vanderbilt Law School and only later discovered that estate planning was much more about people caring for each other than families fighting with each other.

Our Three Step Planning Process

In this video, Little Rock estate planning attorney Stan Miller explains our firm’s unique Three Step Planning Process.
