Death is something no one wants to think about, but it is something everyone should prepare for. Preparing a will ensures the financial security of survivors, and can lessen the burden on your family during an already difficult time. Failing to plan a will means deciding that state lawmakers get to choose how to distribute your assets. By planning, you are in direct control of your property and possessions even after you are gone.

The importance of a will cannot be understated, and if you are thinking about drafting your will, you may feel a little uneasy or stressed about the process. You may be asking yourself if you really need a lawyer to draft your will. The answer is no, no law requires you to hire a lawyer; however, our team of attorneys can make the process much easier.
