Probate Attorney Serving Louisville, Kentucky

Man Writing on Paper

David Holton

Attorney at Law

Growing up, I had a unique life that brought me to pursue a legal career. Driven by the same desire many lawyers tribute their careers to - the pursuit of helping others, I enjoy getting to know my clients and developing a relationship with them. Having gone through my own personal trials and triumphs, I actively advocate for my clients and find satisfaction in their success. I feel like we all have a responsibility to give back to our fellow men and women. Advocating for the underdogs of the world through my legal practice is one of the ways I choose to give back.

Helping You Plan For The Future

As a probate attorney, I know the steps individuals and families can take to avoid the process and better protect their assets. Helping you set up an estate plan allows me to educate you on the many different types of plans, wills, and trusts. I can show you how each of them will protect and determine what happens to your assets when you pass away.

While it is possible to establish a will without legal counsel, I certainly wouldn't recommend it. If you want to ensure that your will is valid and effective, you'll need the advice of an experienced estate planning attorney.

For example, creating a trust is a great way to protect your assets from the probate process. The process can be a little complicated, so you should always consult with the counsel of a skilled trust attorney. He or she can advise you on appointing a trustee that will manage any property or assets of the trust and distribute them to your appointed beneficiaries.

Determining which process is best for your situation can be difficult, but you don't have to face it alone. Seek the advice of an experienced attorney before making any important decisions on how you want your estate to be handled.
