Wills, Probate and Estate Planning

McMahon and Williams Solicitors are a specialist firm with a proven track record in the area of Will drafting, estate and trust administration in County Clare, and in the mid-west region of Ireland.

A Will sets out how a person wishes to dispose of his or her assets on death.  It is important to make a Will so that one’s assets pass in accordance with one’s wishes.  If a person dies without making a Will, their estate will be distributed in accordance with the rules of intestacy.  This may mean that one’s true wishes are not carried out.  A Will is also important as a tax planning device.  McMahon & Williams Solicitors provide their clients with clear and considered advice on all aspects of Will drafting and associated tax issues.

McMahon & Williams recognise that the death of a loved one is a difficult time. We aim to guide our clients through the process of administering a person’s estate in a sensitive and timely manner.  We assist with the payment of funeral expenses, identifying assets and beneficiaries, collecting and distributing assets, applying for Grants of Probate and Administration, advising on tax issues on death including inheritance tax and transferring/selling property on death.

We also provide the following services in the area of Wills, Probate & Trusts:

  • Drafting Wills to make provision for children under 18 including establishing Will Trusts
  • Drafting Wills & Discretionary Trusts to make provision for children/adults with disabilities.
  • Creation and Registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney.
  • Living Wills & Advance Care Directives.
  • Estate Litigation.
  • Capacity Issues/Wardship/Powers of Attorney.

This is an area that requires great attention to detail, knowledge of succession law and practical experience.  The increasing burden of taxation on family transfers from one generation to the next requires careful attention to the preparation of Wills.  As specialists in this area, McMahon & Williams Solicitors offer a comprehensive Estate Administration service assuming the burden of the entire administration process from beginning to end, keeping our clients informed and updated throughout the process.
