    This is a great informational piece that everyone needs to know.

    We all have estates , whether large or small, you need to give some thought as to who you would like to leave your assets.

    Who will be the guardian of your young children?

    How do you want your final expenses to be paid?

    Unfortunately we do see clients who have not made those arrangements.

    No one will hear your voice after you have passed and then you can’t tell the in laws from the outlaws.

    Seek out a lawyer.

    Draft your own will and have it witnessed by someone who is NOT a beneficiary of your will. Sign in front if a Notary.
