Creating Wills to Distribute Assets and Manage Debts

A will, also known as a last will and testament, is a document that provides instructions for the distribution of assets and personal property. The contents of a will often depend upon an individual's life circumstances. For example, young parents may want to incorporate provisions for protecting their children and leave all of their assets to a children's trust. Older adults may wish to leave assets to their children and/or favored charity.

Carol Nolan handles all aspects of creating a will, from discussing financial issues with clients to drafting the document itself. Rest assured, she will make sure your wishes and interests are fully honored.

Living Wills and Healthcare Powers of Attorney

Unlike traditional wills, living wills provide instructions during a person's lifetime. Living wills provide clear instructions regarding life support in the event of a tragic injury or illness. They are often used in conjunction with healthcare powers of attorney, which provide legal authority to a trusted individual to make other important health care decisions in the event that someone becomes unable to make these decisions alone.
