Wills & Powers of Attorney

 

Your will is the most important document you will ever prepare and is the keystone of your estate plan.  It explains how your assets will be distributed and how your dependents will be cared for after you die.  If the will is properly prepared, it ensures that your wishes on these matters will be carried out.  In addition, a comprehensive estate plan will reduce the stress, expense and time that it takes to deal with the death or incapacity of family members and loved ones.
