You’ve been meaning to do this for a while. Estate planning is easy to ignore, even if you know that it’s important to protect your family and your belongings.

We needed a second opinion on a Medicare compliant annuity. Mr. Ladd gladly helped me and gave me the confidence I needed to move forward. And we definitely will be using him in the future for our estate planning.

Great and relatively quick, will-based estate planning, at a reasonable price. Really nice people. Very organized and thorough.

Banks is absolutely amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer to help me navigate stuff I never thought I would have to go through! I could not recommend Banks more if I screamed it from the roof top! He answered every single question I had before I had even asked them. He is extremely knowledgeable and has many contacts for people who can help just as much as he did!

I have been utilizing the services of the Ladd Firm for a little more than a year and have been VERY pleased.I initially retained them to handle my dad's conservatorship which later transitioned into a probate case. Because I continue to be pleased with the work I am receiving working with Mary Carol, my husband and I made the very easy decision to have her husband Banks work with us to draw up our wills.Prior to our Design Meeting for our wills Banks sent us a very educational video that outlines the difference between wills and trusts and the need to have one or both in place. I found the video to be so informative that I forwarded it to several friends in other states who are also in the process of drawing up wills.I cannot say enough good things about the Ladd Firm.

Mr Ladd and his staff were professional and attentive to my Mom's concerns and very patient with her numerous questions. I loved the special care they give to seniors and thoroughly informed us about the various estate planning options. Wholeheartedly recommend the Ladd Law Firm for all your estate planning needs. It's a rare occurrence to hire a lawyer who cares more about the welfare of the person verses the money they earn in billable dollars. We need more honest and helpful men like Mr. Ladd.

Have questions? We have answers.

What is the best way to pass the home and other property to my heirs?

How do I protect a spouse or child who has difficulty managing finances?

Who would handle my finances and health care if I couldn’t make decisions for myself?

Banks C. Ladd

What clients appreciate most about Banks is his warmth and sincerity, qualities they are sometimes surprised to find in a lawyer. His irreverent sense of humor makes the topic of estate planning almost bearable. If there is a slide in his presentation that goes too far, we told him to take it out.

Banks founded the firm in 1995, two years after graduating from law school at the University of Alabama. He is also a graduate of UMS-Wright and Washington & Lee University. Banks has the highest peer review rating (AV) for professional excellence from the legal directory Martindale-Hubbell. He is licensed to practice law in Alabama and Mississippi.

A sixth-generation Mobilian, Banks is anything but stuck in the past. He became fascinated with the impact of the digital age on estate planning. Convinced that online providers were doing more harm than good, he set out to find the best method for offering high-quality estate planning to ordinary families in Mobile and Baldwin counties. In the process, he discovered the unmet need for related elder law services.

Outside the office, Banks is an avid cyclist, rising at 4 am several days a week for early morning bike rides. Banks and Mary Carol have two daughters, Sadie and Virginia, who attend UMS-Wright.

What Banks enjoys most about estate planning and elder law is the opportunity to create harmony among families. Bringing people together is one of his greatest strengths.
