Wills, Trusts and Probate

Pre-planning your estate not only ensures that your property and other assets will be distributed on your terms, but also goes a long way toward easing stress and confusion for your family during an already emotional time. Estate planning does not have to be complex and may be as basic as a “simple will” and a review of how your assets are titled. However, many of our clients want a slightly more detailed plan, including a living trust or provisions for trusts for minor children.

Land Use and Zoning

Land use and zoning laws affect residential and commercial land developmentsubdivision of property, changes to existing structures, business uses and other matters involving real property rights. Most of these matters require approval and permission from local governments and may involve municipal, state, and federal law. Our attorneys have experience in all areas of land use regulation in Tennessee, both in representing governmental planning commissionsboards of zoning appeals and local governing bodies and on behalf of developers and private property owners.
