Periodically clients ask “Do I even need a will?” And, you would expect a lawyer who drafts wills, and trusts, and asset protection plans in Pennsylvania to say yes. And, you should know, that I believe in the value of what I help people to do. And, I have seen many examples of little or no estate planning or outdated documents that just don’t work. When that happens, families spend too much money, pay too much in taxes or take to long to get the state administered.
However, just read this article on what happens when there is no will (or even a few paragraphs) and you’ll know why you need a will. Literally, everyone was fighting and even the lawyers were potentially suing one another – before an estate was even started.
The quick answer: Update your planning and make sure that you at the very least have a valid will. Anything less is an invitation for legal and tax problems that can often be completely avoided.
If you have questions involving other areas of the law ranging from
corporate issues to real estate or even about anything personal such as
an employment or injury claim we will help you, at no charge to find the right
lawyer within our firm or even outside of the firm.
