This Thursday's Meeting: Estate Planning

If someone asks if you have a will and you say no, you may hear the following response from an attorney:  “Yes, you do. The State of Texas has already drawn it up for you. And unless you take the time to prepare your will the way you want it to ensure that your wishes are carried out, the state will decide for you.” Attorneys say everyone needs a will. Getting the facts to help with key decisions in estate planning can be an important first step for most people.

New Oakhurst resident and estate planning attorney Jeremy Carroll will present a program entitled “What is Estate Planning?” at the ONA monthly meeting this Thursday, June 9 at 7pm in the library at Calvary Christian Academy. Jeremy is a graduate of Dallas Baptist University with a degree in business management. In 2014, he earned his law degree from Texas A&M University Law School. Jeremy works in the firm of Leach and Fox, P.C., Estate Attorneys in Hurst. He practices in the areas of wills, trusts, estate planning, probate and estate administration, advanced directives, and powers of attorneys.

A resident of Bluebonnet, Jeremy is pleased to be in Oakhurst. Recently, he was one of the “newbies” who attended the ONA new resident dinner. He’s happy to share a program with his neighbors which he regularly presents to other groups throughout Tarrant County. Please come hear Jeremy’s information on will and estate planning.
