San Antonio Estate Planning Lawyer

My name is Ryan Reiffert, and I am an attorney in San Antonio who provides clients with legal services involving estate planning and probate issues. From drafting wills and trusts, to assisting with medical planning, to guiding a loved one’s estate through the probate process itself, I can help you resolve matters efficiently when creating an end of life plan. While the goals of estate planning clients differ from person to person, fundamentally, they all want their wishes to be respected. Whether your estate plan is about your own dignity at the end of life, preserving your legacy after death, furthering a treasured philanthropic or charitable cause, caring for your loved ones, ensuring the survival of the family business, and/or any other goal you would like to include in your plan (or any combination of these!), you may have to overcome some legal obstacles and nonlegal dynamics to get from Point A to Point B. That is where I come in. I will help you navigate the forest of jargon and documents and the complicated web of family relationships – I do everything I can to make that process easier, simpler, and not quite so scary.

End of life planning can unfortunately cause even the most successful and energetic people to procrastinate. Whether for your own life or for a loved one’s life, it can be scary and uncomfortable to think about wills and trusts and powers of attorney because it means contemplating the end of life; contemplating death. This is absolutely understandable but unfortunately does not render an end of life plan any less important. Therefore, my goal is to give you pragmatic advice.

Who Needs An Estate Plan?

Many people spend their entire lives working to provide for their loved ones. An estate plan is one way to ensure that financial protection continues.

For those who have built a business and may want to hand it down one day, the business succession plan can be the key to preserving that legacy. Many people also have wishes about what should happen to them if they are under medical treatment and unable to speak for themselves. An end of life plan can include various other documents that will ensure your decisions are respected.Many younger parents also want to do everything in their power to ensure their children are taken care of — no matter what happens to them.

Creating an estate plan can allow you to protect your loved ones, secure a legacy, further a cause, preserve the family business, or any number of other things. I can help you create an estate plan that is right for you, and your wishes.

Why Choose Ryan As Your Business Attorney


Excellent Track Record

If you are a startup navigating legal waters for the first time or a small business… If you are an established business looking for a high-quality corporate lawyer… If you are an individual seeking to protect yourself…

If this is “not your first rodeo” and you don’t need hand-holding, you just need a seasoned deal-closer… If your family business is looking for guidance on how to expand or break new ground…


Fee Transparency

Legal work can be expensive, and nobody likes a surprise bill. Having been in-house General Counsel, I have been in that boat, too. I can’t cover all your legal needs for free, but I can help you think about which expenses make sense and which expenses don’t… before we start the clock.

Unlike some of the larger and older law firms, I can also help with some unique and tailored alternative fee arrangements.


Personal Attention

My philosophy is simple. I believe that when you hire an attorney, that attorney should handle your issue.

Therefore, when you hire me, I will handle your issue. When you call my office, you will talk to me (unless I am meeting with another client). When you have questions, I will be the one answering them (if I can).
