A will, sometimes called a Last Will and Testament, is a legal document in which you identify those individuals who will receive your property and possessions upon your death. We recommend all our clients draft a will. This is true no matter how small your estate or whether or not you use other estate planning tools to distribute your assets. In a will, you appoint a Personal Representative, who is the person in charge of managing your affairs and ensuring that your property is distributed in accordance with the provisions of your will. You may also name the guardian of your minor children, make specific gifts to individuals or charities, or even include burial instructions.
