Helpful Tips

Everybody needs a will: A will is a powerful tool. It allows an individual to state how they want their assets distributed upon their death and to whom they should go to. Dying without a will, also known as "dying intestate" does not allow you the right to choose who inherits your estate, but rather gives the State the power to decide.
