WHY HAVE A WILL?
A Will can be one of the most important documents you will ever write. It brings peace of mind of knowing your affairs are in order. Call us today. We can help!

In our law practice we see the negative effects on families whose loved ones leave behind no directives either as to their property or their health care should they become incapacitated. As such the possibility for a contentious family dispute and lingering animosity between adult children, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles is great.

Having a will allows you to name who you think should be the guardian of your minor children should you die. No parent would want to leave that to a court, a relative or other person whom to decided is best to care for their minor children. If you love your children you will have a will that nominates a guardian for your minor children.
