Drafting a Last Will & Testament

The power of a will should not be underestimated. A will, also known as a last will and testament, specifies what should be done with your property upon your death or incapacitation. Effective wills that are written correctly can help ensure your family is taken care after you pass away.

A last will and testament has the power to communicate your desires regarding:

  • Leaving property to people or organizations
  • Naming a trusted person to manage property that you leave to minor children
  • Naming a trustee, or a person whom you trust to handle your will and ensure that your desired terms are carried out

Consider this: Would you rather have control over your estate or risk your property being distributed by a judge who has no knowledge or care for your family or situation? If you prefer to be in charge of your future, the most effective way to protect your legacy and investments is through a last will and testament.

What happens if I die without a will?

In the event that you die without a will in place, the state of Arizona will determine how your assets are distributed. The reality is that Arizona’s court system is not tailored to your family’s needs and are simply there to distribute the property, an act that could have devastating effects on your family.
