Do I need a will or a trust? What about a power of attorney?

August 7, 2017

There are several estate planning “bases” that we recommend that everyone should have covered. For example, it is important that we have the right document, whether a will or a trust, to dictate what happens with our assets after we’re gone and to name the person who will administer our estates. Also, wills are needed for parents of minor children to appoint guardians for the children in the event of the parents’ deaths. And, it is critical that we have the right documents to say who would handle our affairs, both financial and medical, if we become unable to during our lives.

Our estate planning attorneys can help you determine what documents you need and make sure you have these bases covered!
