Regardless of your health, age, or income level, having a valid last will and testament is important. As one of the most basic yet often overlooked types of estate planning documents, it details any property, assets, or debts you possess, dictates your final wishes to family members and friends, and helps to avoid potentially costly and contentious probate proceedings. Whether you are taking the first steps in creating a will or making updates to an existing document, the following are four important items you should take care not to overlook.
According to a 2016 Gallup poll, close to 60 percent of all adults in the United States do not have a valid will in place. Of those who do, it is easy to overlook important updates that should be made, such as when a birth, death, or marriage occurs in your family or when your assets increase as the result of your income, investments, or due to an inheritance. When making an appointment with our estate planning attorney to create or update your will, take time to consider the following:
Make sure your family members and friends have clear instructions in the event the unexpected occur.

We can’t thank you enough for all you have done.
Attorney Michael Massino made me feel so relaxed. I really appreciate all he did for me.
I was represented by your firm in the above referenced matter. I received a letter in the mail seeking my feedback as it related to the services I received. I am happy to take a moment to respond. In all areas I would rate the firm with all 5’s (excellent). The attorney that represented me was Alex Beck. Alex was so easy to talk to, communication was always open, with the steps and processes clearly laid out and understandable to me. Alex is just a very likable great guy, while at the same time being a very knowledgeable professional in his discipline. I have already in the past ,and will continue to in the future, refer your law firm to friends and family. I’d also like to say Donna was of tremendous help and was an absolute pleasure to be assisted by. Thank you, James Nichols
