You Need An Attorney's Advice When You Create A Will

Most people think it's too expensive to hire an attorney to create a will. But the reality is that estate planning is an affordable way to see that matters are handled they way you would like them to after your death.

Why Do I Need A Will?

When someone dies without a will, their relatives are concerned about the decisions they need to make. Survivors are left feeling shocked after a death, and not having a will makes everyone feel even more adrift. The peace of mind a will gives your loved ones makes the entire process so much smoother. They know they are carrying out your wishes the way you intended. It's very comforting — allowing everyone in the family to know that they are proceeding in the way that you want them to.

When sitting down with our attorney, often people will say, "Oh, I didn't think of that" when they hear specific legal guidance. That's what you receive from a proper, individualized consultation with a lawyer. This isn't an area where you want to save money by buying a will kit instead of an attorney's advice.

When creating a will, you need to make sure you are doing everything you need in estate planning, seeing to it that you — and your family — after taken care of after you are gone.
