Wills and Estates
every day, when a person sits in our office signing
his/her Will, they tell us, "I'm so glad I'm finally
doing this. I've wanted to get a Will written for
so many years..." It's true, it is smart!
Making your Will allows you now,
while living, to decide exactly who will receive
your assets after your death. Without a Will, State
Estate Statutes determine who gets what of yours.
For a nominal fee, we will prepare
your Will. Then, we will assist you to meet all
required formalities so that when the Will is executed
and signed, it will have full legal effect.
Keep in mind, you can change your
Will anytime during your lifetime.
The death of a loved one always leaves family members
and friends faced with the responsibilities of resolving
a decedent's estate, whether large or small.
Among legal issues faced include:
How to probate a Will? What happens if there is
no Will? Should a bank account be closed? How to
collect life insurance proceeds? Do stocks need
to be transferred? Are there personal belongings
to be distributed? What are the estate or inheritance
taxes? How do you divide family property? Are pension
benefits available? What legal papers need to be
