In response to COVID-19 and the current State of Emergency, we have reinstated our same-day Last Will & Testament & Power of Attorney program.
You can now have your emergency family documents prepared and executed virtually/in person, within just a few hours.
At Lustick, Kaiman & Madrone, having a Last Will and Testament, Living Will, and Power of Attorney drawn-up and executed is easier than ever and highly affordable. With our unique program, you get all of your documents done on the same day of your request.
During this time of crisis, it could be a big mistake to put off preparing POAs and other essential documents. If you or your loved one dies without a legal will, assets will be distributed according to a derogatory scheme set up in state law, and not according to you or your loved one’s actual wishes. Having a will in place will ensure that estates are managed and executed according to the person’s wishes.
A will allows you to leave clear instructions on how your estate is distributed. It allows you to choose your own Executors who are responsible for carrying out your last wishes. In your will, you can appoint guardians to look after any underage children, and it gives your family direction on what your wishes are for medical care and private insurance plan. Additionally, having a will provides you the ability to make specific gifts to individuals or entities, such as close family friends, churches, or universities.
Many expensive and time-consuming problems can arise when a person dies without an executable will. When a will is in place, unpleasantries and inconvenience can often be avoided. Quarreling over assets among heirs can be eliminated as well as controversy and stress.
While there are will-writing tools available online, writing a will is a task that should not be attempted on your own, especially when doing so is in response to a crisis. When you hire our law team to prepare your documents, you can feel confident that they will contain the necessary, specific language you need in order to have your wishes carried out without confusion.
