Wills are a legal document that outline how someone’s property will be divided after their death. However, while wills are an important part of the estate planning process, surveys have shown that as few as one in three Americans have one. Part of the reason for this is because many people are under the assumption that preparing a will is a long and complicated process. But for most people, this doesn’t have to be the case. Our firm can assist you with a quick and easy process of preparing your will to ensure that your property is divided among your heirs in accordance with your wishes, and not decided upon by the state after you die. In many cases, we can create a will within a matter of a week or two after an initial meeting. Through our many years of experience, we’re able to provide you with quick service, but not at the expense of creating anything but an airtight legal document that will bring you peace of mind for years to come.
Unless your estate is extremely large and complex, the good news about preparing a will is that it can be an affordable way to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes. Our office can prepare a will that will cover general provisions, advanced provisions, and other important directions at a cost that makes sense and which could save your family thousands of dollars in the future. We offer our clients a free initial consultation to discuss the creation of a will and how it may fit into an overall estate plan. Although there are many websites and do-it-yourself wills, from our experience there are few family financial situations that are so simple that they do not need a lawyer and the individual attention required to protect your family. Just like other family financial issues, you should consider a will as an investment in your future, and making that small investment now will pay handsome dividends in the future.
