WILLS AND TRUSTS
At a minimum everyone should have a Will to express his/her wishes regarding guardians for minor children and nominate a personal representative to handle your estate after you die. When properly drafted, a Will allows you to name individuals or organizations to receive your assets after you die. These recipients are called beneficiaries.
Although Arizona and Wisconsin do recognize handwritten, or holographic wills, writing your own will can be risky. A holographic will is one that is handwritten by you. If done incorrectly, the court may deem your Will to be invalid. It might be contested by family members or you may leave out important clauses, leading to confusion and delayed distribution of your assets and expensive legal proceedings to determine what you meant.
Our experienced attorneys can help you avoid mistakes when creating your last will and testament, ensuring that your wishes will be carried out and your assets be distributed as efficiently as possible after your death.
