Wills and Will Disputes

The creation of a will is the simplest form of estate planning. A will is a legal written document by which you designate the persons or entities who will receive the assets you own as well as appoint legal guardians for your minor children. Additionally, your will designates a trusted individual, known as a Personal Representative, responsible for administering your estate. A will must be executed in the presence of two witnesses and acknowledged by a Notary Public. A will properly implemented in one state will be valid in any other state in which death may occur.

If you currently have a will, we can review the current structure, allocations and designations to ensure the document continues to be accurate and reflect your wishes. Our estate planning attorneys at Duggan & Hughes helps individuals and families through the use of a combination of estate planning instruments such as wills, trusts, health care proxy and durable power of attorney to establish protection for them during their lifetime as well as asset preservation for future generations.
