Estate Planning & Probate

Planning for Life

Many people are surprised to learn that the State of Alabama has laws of intestacy for those who fail to have an estate plan of their own. Unfortunately, the Alabama laws of intestacy may not be what you would want for your family if you passed away without an estate plan. At the Swindall Law Firm, LLC we care about what matters to you – your family – and want to help you create a plan that protects your assets and loved ones.

We provide personalized service and offer flat fee’s that are agreed to in advance for estate plans.
