About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

Will Pylant founded Pylant Estate Law because he saw the need for a boutique estate planning, probate and estate law firm in North Alabama that charges reasonable fees. He has assisted many North Alabama families with estate planning and preserving assets and family legacies. He has also prosecuted and defended will contests and heirship property disputes to trial, advised trustees on large and complicated trusts, and helped families resolve matters privately in mediation.

Will has worked in the area of estates, trusts, and probate for his entire career. Before founding Pylant Estate Law, Will was a trust officer at regional bank where he administered wills and trusts in which the bank was named as Executor or Trustee. He also assisted high net worth individuals with planning their estate. Prior to his time with the bank, Will practiced with a prominent firm and handled cases involving estate planning, will contests, power of attorney disputes, guardianship and conservatorship matters, elder law, and heirship property litigation including sale for division.

Will is a past president of the Young Lawyers Section of the Huntsville Bar Association and previously served on the Alabama State Bar Association’s Senior Lawyer-New Lawyer Task Force.

Outside of the office, Will serves as Treasurer of the Board of Directors of the Huntsville Botanical Garden and is active with Huntsville First United Methodist Church where he helps his wife with the youth group.

Will holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Alabama where he graduated Magna Cum Laude and was recognized by the National Alumni Association as one of ten outstanding seniors for the class of 2014. While at UA, Will was elected as SGA Executive Vice President and Vice President for Student Affairs. He received the Lister Hill award for his work with student government which included leading projects promoting the baseball team, the arts, veterans’ affairs, parking and campus diversity. He was a member of the honor societies Omicron Delta Kappa, Blue Key, Order of Omega, and Pi Sigma Alpha. He also volunteered his time with tornado relief and free tax preparation.

Will received his Juris Doctor from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University where he was a Caruthers Fellow, Research and Writing Editor for The American Journal of Trial Advocacy and President of the Cumberland Republicans. Additionally, he was also the Scholar of Merit (best paper) in Constitutional Law II and American Law Practice and Procedure. In his third year, Will was named to Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. He also served in the Student Bar Association as a class representative.

Will is active in local and state politics, having served as an intern in the Governor’s office, the campaign aide and driver to the Mayor of Huntsville, and as a United States Page appointed by United States Senator Richard Shelby. He has assisted with several successful local and state campaigns.

Will is a proud product of Huntsville City Schools, having graduated from Huntsville High School in 2010 as class president.

Knowledgeable and Responsive
I recently worked with Attorney Plyant on resolving a dispute regarding a real estate transaction. He did a superb job in answering all my questions within a timely manner and making sure I understood my choices. It was important to me to not feel rushed or pushed into making decisions too quickly. He showed great patience and care in representing me and working to resolve the issue at hand in a satisfactory manner. I am so impressed with him that I plan to go back for future estate planning services.

Very knowledgeable and competent lawyer
I have been to Will twice now. The first was for a consultation on an elder law matter. He impressed me so much that my husband and I went back for our estate planning. Will and the others at the office were very efficient and pleasant to deal with. We recommend him without reservation!

My husband and I recently worked with Mr. Pylant to draw up estate planning documents. He was knowledgeable, answered any questions we had, and drew up the documents very efficiently. The consultation and signing meetings were very thorough but efficient. We were extremely pleased and highly recommend him! He made the entire process so easy, along with the rest of the staff!

Quick Turnaround Estate Planning
We contacted Martinson & Beason, using their online form, for our estate planning on the recommendation of my sister and got a quick response from Will Pylant. We wanted wills, POA, advance directives, the works, before our big vacation, which was in just a week. The next business day we were interviewed by Will and the draft documents were provided for review in two days by Stephanie Nunez. We requested minor changes and were able to sign the next day. All in all, a very personable and responsive team and a great pleasure to work with.

Grateful for Ease of Executing a Will
I contacted Martinson & Beason to schedule an appointment to have a simple will drawn up. I was very fortunate to have Mr. Will Pylant as my attorney. He is very personable while maintaining a professional demeanor. He listened attentively to my requests and answered my questions fully, asking pertinent ones of his own and valuable guidance to insure that the will would be what I wanted. Having slipped my mind, I truly appreciated that he inquired about my Health Directive and Power of Attorney, which were in need updating. He was able to draft the Will, Health Directive and Power of Attorney and send them for my review within a day and schedule the signing and execution of documents within another 2 days. Even a last minute change was made on the spot. I am completely satisfied with the documents prepared and executed and manner in which Mr. Pylant did so. It is my pleasure to recommend Mr. Pylant without reservation in any of his areas of practice.
