Please read our blog site for useful tips about making a will and estate planning for the future.

No one likes to talk about death, especially their own. But if you don’t make plans on how you want to distribute your worldly wealth while you’re still alive, you can leave a host of problems and hardships for your grieving family to sort out. This is especially difficult as the Probate process can be time consuming and cumbersome at times with numerous requirements, filings and deadlines.

This site is intended to give you straightforward information and the articles cover a variety of topics including:

  • creating a will;
  • a lifetime trust or power of attorney; and
  • learning how to avoid probate problems or act as an executor
