Making a will is one of the best decisions you can make for your future and the future of your family. Not only will it ensure that the distribution of your assets is handled according to your wishes, it will save your loved ones stress and tension during a very difficult time. Without a will, your estate and assets could be distributed according to the law of the state without regard to your desires.
At Watson Legal Group, our team has extensive experience handling simple wills, estates, and trusts. We understand the importance of ensuring that your estate and health wishes are handled with the utmost care and attention to detail.
Our areas of expertise regarding wills, estates, and trusts include, but are not limited to:
A will is a legal document in which a person’s wishes are documented and memorialized in regards to the distribution of real property, personal assets, and other items.
Powers of Attorney
Powers of Attorney allows a person to designate someone else to act on their behalf should they become incapacitated for any reason.
Advance Directives for Health Care
A living will or an Advance Directive for Health Care allows a person to record specific wishes or instructions for loved ones in the event that he or she is unable to make end-of-life decisions.
A Trust allows a person, typically parents of young children, to designate a person or an institution the responsibility for managing his or her estate until the child is of a certain age.
The lawyers at Watson Legal Group have considerable experience practicing Probate Law wherein the validity of a will is proven in court. If a person dies without designating a will, the probate court will appoint a representative for the will to properly distribute its assets according to the law.
