Preparing an estate plan is critical to ensure your assets and family are protected in the event of your death or inability to make decisions for yourself. Having a properly drawn and executed Will is crucial to ensuring the proper distribution of your assets at death. It is also essential to continue to review and update your Will, to ensure that your estate plan still meets your needs. Powers of Attorney are crucial to ensure that your trusted person has been properly appointed to make decisions in the event of your absence or inability to make decisions.
Many people put off the drafting of estate documents, until it is too late. Often, the result of a poorly planned estate is that your care, and your property, will not be distributed as you had wished.

You will have confidence in knowing that your Powers of Attorney for property and personal care are there to protect you in life, and that in death, your estate you worked so hard for, will be distributed according to your wishes.
