Standard Will Templates Are Insufficient
It seems that almost anything is available online these days, including templates for establishing a will in Massachusetts. However, if you think about your life, your assets, your heirs, and other aspects of your estate, they are quite unique. It would be difficult for a generic template to address your personal and specific needs. Additionally, wills and estate planning are not simply about filling out a single form. It is important to understand your goals and to find solutions to help you achieve them. No generic form can replace the advice and guidance of an experienced estate planning attorney.
Proper Estate Planning Goes Beyond the Will
Proper estate planning goes beyond simply establishing a will in Massachusetts. You should also think about creating a trust, avoiding probate, providing for the special needs of a loved one, and/or charitable giving. Our Massachusetts attorneys can assist you with all of these important estate planning components.
