Far too many people put off creating a last will and estate plan until they reach retirement age or after a diagnosis with a serious illness. In reality, the more assets you have and the more complex your family unit, the more important it is to create an estate plan as soon as possible. Working with an experienced estate planning attorney can help protect your assets, your family, and your peace of mind. After all, many people die or become incapacitated unexpectedly, due to an accident or a sudden medical event, like a stroke. Don't leave your family unprotected if the unexpected happens.
