The Kennedys: Examples of winning estate administration

Most Texas residents are interested in leaving some type of legacy for children or heirs. Though many individuals likely don't think of estate administration on a daily basis, it's important to plan ahead if you want to leave heirs financially sound. Estate planning isn't only for the wealthy. Planning ahead lets you choose how to distribute assets, but it also protects heirs from taxes or creditors.

With 78 percent of former NFL players and 60 percent of former NBA players declaring bankruptcy within five years after their retirement, money mismanagement is arguably an epidemic.
