Without a valid will, the disbursement of your assets, as well as the medical and financial decisions you cannot make, will likely be determined by the State. Probate according to State laws is often a lengthy process, and can result in heavy tax penalties on your estate.
Avoid the consequences of not having a will and take control of your estate planning with a will drafted by the experienced attorneys at the Law Offices of Kent and Senen. We will listen to your estate planning goals and create a will that ensures those goals are met.
Your will is ideal for creating directives for the allocation of your assets following your passing. Your will can name the executor, establish medical care and financial directives, even mandate conditions of your end-of-life arrangements.

In many cases, no. A will facilitates the process, but does not eliminate it. However, a well-crafted and maintained trust can minimize or completely bypass the probate process by securing assets to named beneficiaries immediately upon your passing.
