Protecting Your Family And Your Assets

When it comes to your family and your assets, you need to protect them both from any legal issues you may face. If you run into conflict with fellow family members or the other parent of your child, you need to do everything you can to maintain you and your child's well-being. To protect your assets, you need to prepare for the future to avoid probate.

I am attorney Cassandra E. Johnson. At my law office in St. Louis, Missouri, I am ready to help you do both of these things.

Facing Family Conflicts?

My experience in family law allows me to represent you in matters involving:

  • Divorce
  • Legal separation
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Adoption

In many cases, my clients do not know where to turn or what they need. I understand how frightening and overwhelming these situations can be. I am dedicated to helping you and your children through these legal processes with compassion and professionalism. I will explore every option, and we will work together to find the best solution to your family situation, even if it is not a "traditional" one. No matter what you are dealing with, I am ready to help.

Everyone Needs An Estate Plan

Regardless of your income or the amount of assets you have, it is important to have an estate plan. These documents lay out your wishes clearly and establish beneficiaries so your loved ones can avoid conflict and probate when you pass on. They also allow you to pass your wealth onto the next generation without issue. Many estate plans involve:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives
  • Beneficiary deeds
  • Conservatorship
  • Guardianship

If you have young children, it is especially important to establish guardianship and conservatorship in your plan; you do not want someone else determining who will raise your children or control their finances.

If a person dies intestate (without a will), their estate must go through probate. Establishing an estate plan will help your loved ones avoid this long and arduous process. Your unofficial wishes may be taken into account, but there is no guarantee that a court will approve your wishes. It is best for everyone to avoid probate.

However, if you find yourself faced with probate because of the death of a loved one, you need a lawyer to help you. I am ready and available to assist you and your family.
