WILLS & PROBATE

Wills Tailored to Our Client’s Circumstances, Concerns and Goals

 

For many, estate planning is a difficult topic because it is not easy to think about the end of one’s life. Yet, one can benefit greatly from having a proper estate plan in place. Throughout one’s life, a person accumulates different types of property. The way that property is passed on to others depends on the existence and validity of a will.  A will accomplishes many things such as choosing who receives your property, appointing guardians to provide for care of your minor children, naming an executor that will handle the distribution of your property in accordance with your wishes, naming trustees to manage any property you might leave to minor children, and more. With a will, you get to ensure that the assets you worked hard to accumulate are passed on to the people and organizations you choose, and you reduce the costs of probate to do so.
