Plan aheadWhatever you do, plan for the disposition of
your assets. It is the most loving thing you can do
for your family because they are assured by the
power of your guidance to follow your wishes—
no uncertainty, no arguments. It is also the only
way you can influence your financial legacy. The
default distribution may not meet your desires.
Be aware that not all assets are transferred
by will. Certain contractual rights such as life
insurance and retirement and annuity benefits
are disposed of by the terms of the contract,
usually a designation of beneficiary. A trust
contract disposes of the assets transferred to the
trust or trustee but only those assets. For some

If you wish a personal explanation or some assistance in planning a gift
to Menninger, I would be glad to help. After 33 years as a practicing
attorney in Texas, I wanted an opportunity to help people on a larger
scale and to serve a cause that excited me. My position at Menninger
is a perfect fit on both counts. My legal training, which includes both a
Master of Laws in Estate Planning and Certification in Estate Planning
and Probate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, gives
me the expertise necessary to assist Menninger’s supporters and their
advisors in meeting their charitable objectives.
