Families Protected



Client Satisfaction

Utah Estate Planning Attorney

At Helgesen, Houtz & Jones we have helped guide thousands of people through the estate planning process. We have worked with individuals creating an estate plan, as well as those coming to us for help settling their parent’s estate. Creating an estate plan is one of the most important things you can do for you family. No matter what age you live to, your passing will be an emotional time for your family. Nobody should have to deal with settling an estate while trying to grieve the loss of a loved one.

Can I make my estate plan without the help of an attorney?

Time and time again we have seen individuals create their own estate plans without the assistance of an estate planning attorney in order to save some money. They trust that their loved ones will follow their wishes (as any parent would) after they pass, so instead of creating a legal plan they just let their loved ones know what actions should be carried out on their behalf.
More often than not, the result of creating your own estate plan will lead to contention, damaged relationships and/or thousands of dollars paid by your family in attorney fees fighting over your estate. Deciding to work with an estate planning attorney now will save you money, protect the relationships of those you love and take away any unnecessary stress during the grieving process.


We are here to help

We have helped thousands of people create an estate plan that will protect their family and their assets long after their passing. Each estate plan is unique, but we have seen enough different situations to know how to create a plan to provide for those you love as well as minimize contentions among family members after you pass away.
We would love to have the opportunity to help you create your estate plan. If you have any questions about estate plans, settling an estate, or you want to create your estate plan please do not hesitate to contact us. There is no better time to take action than now.
