Wills, Trusts & Estate Planning
Every adult needs an estate plan. The #1 cause of failing to execute an estate plan prior to death or incapacity is procrastination. Without an estate plan, an individual has no assurances that his or her intentions will be honored or followed, and a court has no power to uphold what may have been one’s intentions.
