Estate Planning and Probate Practice Group

Payne & Jones counsels families facing the challenges of estate planning and probate administration with creative and reliable solutions, and our attorneys have provided legal assistance to thousands of clients with a wide-range of estates, from the small-but-growing to the large-and-complex. Regardless of the size of the estate, Payne & Jones is dedicated to facilitating the client’s objectives while minimizing the federal and estate transfer tax burden and the cost associated with administration.

The firm’s estate and probate attorneys are knowledgeable and experienced in utilizing effective tools to create personally-tailored estate plans. They are experienced in drafting wills, living or revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, insurance trusts, marital trusts, trusts for minors, charitable giving alternatives, such as charitable lead and remainder trusts and private foundations, powers of attorney, including powers of attorney for healthcare, and living wills and advance directives.

Our firm is called on by our clients to represent executors, trustees, creditors and beneficiaries in both adversarial and non-adversarial estate administration proceedings. As part of our comprehensive probate practice, Payne & Jones also handles adoptions, name changes, conservatorships, guardianships and receiverships. With experience in both Kansas and Missouri, the firm is well-known and respected among the probate and estate planning bar.

Our attorneys provide straightforward practical and individually-tailored advice and solutions for these critical matters in the lives of our clients.
