WHAT MIGHT BE INCLUDED IN MY ESTATE PLAN
Given the highly personal nature of estate planning, every plan is uniquely tailored to the needs and objectives of the person creating the plan. Nevertheless, some common estate planning tools and strategies that are often included in an estate plan include:
Last Will and Testament
Among the most important reasons to execute a Will is to ensure that you do not leave behind an intestate estate which effectively allows the state to decide what happens to your assets after you are gone.
Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney (POA) allows you to appoint an Agent to act on your behalf in legal matters. A POA can be general or limited which dictates the extent of the authority you grant to the Agent, and when that authority ends.
Tennessee recognizes two types of advance directives. An Appointment of Health Care Agent lets you appoint someone to make health care decisions for you if you are unable to make them yourself.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Criminal Defense clients
I am confused about the only review on this page. It is so not the truth. I have had Mr. Bennett as my lawyer a couple of times and know him very well. Most attorneys know that they make alot of money of you and that is all that they care about. However, Mr. Bennett really does care about you as a person. He always asks about what is going on in my life, and cares about my well being. In the courtroom he tries his absolute best to get you in the least amount of trouble as possible, and almost always succeeds! I got out of a lot of trouble that i so deserved to be in, and without him I couldn't have. I already have recommended him to other people and will continue to do so forever. Great Lawyer and you will not be disappointed. Hiring him was worth literally every penny!
Criminal Defense client
Stan is a very professional Attorney. He was easy to communicate with and had compassion for us knowing the circumstances were unjust. He did exactly as he promised and we were very pleased with outcome. We would highly recommend Stan.
Very professional and experienced. Always kept me informed. Gave me great advice and saved me quite a bit of money. Honest, knowledgeable, and very effective lawyer. Some of the best money I ever spent.
Stan has helped me with two separate family cases in the past. In both of them, he always listened to everything I had to say and was always available or called back quick whenever I had a question. He really knows his stuff! Also, he's very nice and went out of his way to help me the way I needed help. He worked around my schedule with my homebound wife, and made sure I was comfortable on the court date. I hope I don't ever need a lawyer again, but if I do I know who I'm calling.

Mr. Bennett was amazing! I would definitely recommend him! He cares about getting you the best deal and he will get it for you. He helped me a lot and everything went so smooth. If you are in any kind of trouble Mr. Bennett is the way to go.
Mr. Bennett is an amazing criminal defense attorney, he not only took my case (which was a very difficult one) but he also kept me informed and would always ask how my wife and kids were doing, he cares! In a world that has increasingly grown uncaring for people (especially people in "trouble") Mr. Bennett was a welcome breath of air. People make mistakes and he understands that. I am truly pleased with the results I got in the courtroom. Mr. Bennett was excellent in his negotiating with the DA. THANK YOU!!
