About Us

The Barchet Law Office is located in Columbia, Missouri and practices in the following areas:

Wills, Trusts, Asset Protection & Health Care Planning
We help clients protect their assets and families, and avoid probate by creating an estate plan that suits their specific needs.  Whether your needs are simple or complex, we can create a comprehensive plan designed to avoid probate, protect assets and minimize costs.  This plan can include a power of attorney, a healthcare plan and directive, as well as a will or trust.  We create a plan using a three step method which consists of an initial meeting to discuss the client’s goals and wishes, drafting a plan tailored to achieve these unique goals, and a second meeting to finalize the documents, and go over how to enact the plan.
Elder Law
We advocate for the elderly by providing a wide variety of services to individuals and their families.  Every situation is different; our attorneys understand this and work personally with their clients to form a unique plan to meet their goals and objectives.  Some areas in which we can provide guidance include: asset protection, qualifying for Medicaid, guardianship planning and proceedings, disability planning, long-term care insurance, nursing-care planning, and trust or estate administration.
We compassionately guide executors, trustees, survivors and heirs through the process of settling their loved one’s affairs.  We work to avoid probate whenever possible, avoiding unnecessary taxes and claims, fighting Medicaid and TEFRA liens and ensuring proper inheritance distribution.  We can help find unclaimed life insurance and benefits, and maximize inheritance, assets and distribution for families and survivors. 
Business Law
We have experience and are ready to help entrepreneurs, small business owners, and farmers start, buy, sell, and operate businesses, LLCs and corporations.  There are many questions regarding liability exposure, taxes, and insurance when starting, merging, or managing a business.  Our attorneys help business owners throughout Columbia and Mid-Missouri to protect their assets, minimize their personal and business liability and risk, as well as understand the legal implications of Limited Liability Companies (LLC), partnerships, S Corporations, and C Corporations.  We are also experienced at drafting and reviewing Buy/Sell Agreements, as well as Succession Plans and Operating Agreements.
