A will is a legally binding document that distributes your assets in accordance with your final wishes. Take control now, or the state will. A well-written will gives you the freedom to decide pathways for the people and things you care about. For somebody who already has a will, updating it might be necessary if circumstances change, for example, if you have more dependents or have acquired more property. Creating a will is far more affordable and less time-consuming than people assume.

When you hire me to write your will, we will sit down and discuss your property and your wishes for where that property shall go when you pass. I'll draft a legally binding document that ensures your wishes are carried out. I will provide witnesses and a notary for your will signing, and you will leave with the document that should be filed by your executor upon your passing. If allowed in your county, I can also pre-file your will with the proper department.

A living will helps you make medical decisions when you're still physically and mentally capable. If something happens where you're unable to communicate your wishes, your loved one won't be left to guess. With a properly executed living will, your medical team will be required to follow the wishes you have outlined.

A Power of Attorney can cover either medical purposes or general matters. It allows the person you designate to carry out your affairs -- making medical decisions, withdrawing benefits from a financial account, or buying and selling property, for example. Your Power of Attorney can be effective immediately, on a certain date or upon a certain condition such as you being unable to make such decisions. Essentially, an executed Power of Attorney allows somebody you trust to continue your affairs on your behalf if you are unable to or simply for convenience.
