Communicate Your Wishes Through A Legal Will
At the Law Office of Todd R. Worthley, we draft and re-work wills and other essential documents. If you need a new will — whether you are a young couple with a new baby or a middle-aged adult planning for your children — we can help ensure your wishes are communicated clearly and accurately.
If you die without a will, state law governs. You need a will if you are married, have kids, or have a lot of assets. You may not need a will if you are young, single, childless, and broke. When it is time for you to get a will in place, make sure you hire an estate attorney to draft it for you.
Why should I have a will?
There are many reasons to have a will. Wills aren’t only for the wealthy or those with complex assets and finances. A will makes it clear about who gets your assets, who gets what and how much. It also keeps assets away from people you don’t want your assets ourt of the hands of people you don’t want to have them.
If you have a will, your heirs will have faster and easier access to your assets because the state and the courts won’t be deciding who gets what and how much. You can identify who will take care of your children, or your adult children may take better care of your grandchildren.
You can also save money on your estate taxes, along with giving gifts and charitable donations, which can offset the estate tax. Call today, for even more benefits for having a wills attorney draft your will for you today!

What is a will?
A will is a legal document which proactively states your wishes regarding the distribution of you property and the future care of any minor children after you die. If you don’t have a will, your wishes may not be carried out. In addition your final wishes, your heirs may spend money, time, and unecesary emotional energy to settle your arrairs when you are gone.
