Do your will or trust in 2016

This is the time of year to make resolutions and set goals for the new year. Your list might include goals like getting in shape, organizing your house, and traveling more. Another popular New Year’s resolution is to get a will or trust in place. Our firm can help you cross that goal off your list and it will be easier than you think.

Why should you get your planning done in 2016? With well-drafted documents prepared by our attorneys, you can accomplish the following:

  1. Ensure that your assets transfer to the person(s) of your choice

  4. Identify who will make financial or health decisions for you if you can’t
  5. Preserve your wealth by avoiding probate fees and estate taxes
  6. Perhaps most importantly, you will have peace of mind knowing you have a great plan in place
