The attorneys at Nabors & Nabors use their personal approach to help clients develop estate plans that meet their individual needs. Whether you are looking for a simple Will or considering a complex Trust, the attorneys at Nabors & Nabors can help you develop an estate plan that meets your needs while providing for your loved ones in the future.
Last Will and Testament
A Last Will and Testament indicates who inherits your assets that have to pass through probate court when you pass away and who your executor is going to be, with that person being in charge of carrying out your wishes. Additionally, if you have children under the age of 18, your Last Will and Testament will indicate who is to be the guardian of your children. Even if you have your estate plan set up to avoid probate, it is recommended that you have a Will in place to act as a safety net to ensure that if any of your assets have to pass through probate, those assets go to the people you want.
Durable Power of Attorney
A Durable Power of Attorney names an individual who can handle your financial affairs on your behalf. This allows for your bills to be paid in the event you are incapacitated and unable to do so yourself. Without a Durable Power of Attorney, your family may need to spend time and money applying for a guardianship to handle your finances in the event you are incapacitated.
Health Care Power of Attorney
A Health Care Power of Attorney names an individual who can make medical decisions for you when you are incapacitated and unable to do so yourself. Without a Health Care Power of Attorney, if there is a dispute between members of your family about how to handle your medical decisions, a guardianship may need to be established to handle your medical decisions.
A Living Will indicates whether or not you want life-sustaining treatment to be taken when you cannot indicate so yourself at the moment a decision needs to be made.
Revocable Living Trust
A Revocable Living Trust is a testamentary document that gives you more control of when the people you want to inherit your assets actually can inherit their share of your estate. This is useful when you are concerned about one of your beneficiaries inheriting their entire share of your estate all at once.
The attorneys at Nabors & Nabors represent individuals in probate court who are been tasked with handling a deceased family member or friend's estate. We can help you understand the ins-and-outs of the requirements of estate administration and help make the process as smooth as possible.
If you have a family member who needs assistance in handling their financial affairs and medical decisions, and that family member does not have a Durable Power of Attorney and/or Health Care Power, you may need to apply for a guardianship. The attorneys at Nabors & Nabors can assist you in the process of applying for guardianship.
Occasionally, a death or new marriage may result in individuals seeking to adopt a minor. The attorneys at Nabors & Nabors can put their experience to work for you and help guide you through the adoption process.
Deeds and Purchase Agreements
The attorneys at Nabors & Nabors have combined to prepare hundreds of deeds. Additionally, they have represented both buyers and sellers in the preparation of real estate purcahse agreements.

Nabors III represents buyers who are experiencing property defects that were not disclosed by the seller. Jay also represents sellers who have been accused of failing to disclose property defects.
