Estate Planning Wills in Arizona
Wills are one of the fundamental building blocks of an estate plan and are the most basic of estate planning tools. Wills provide the opportunity to determine who inherits estate assets. Wills do not provide the same level of control as other estate planning tools, but they still have a vital role to play in the estate plans made by many people who wish to express preferences for the disposition of assets after death.
At the Abood Law Firm, PLLC, attorney Jim Abood will assist you in creating a comprehensive, legally valid wills. He can explain how a will should fit within a cohesive legacy plan. He will advise you on the technical aspects of creating a will and work with you to ensure that your will contains the clauses you need to protect your family and assets.
Because wills can be contested and because you could lose the opportunity to control your estate if your will is declared invalid, it is important to work with an experienced attorney in creating your last will and testament. We can advise you on the legal steps that must be taken to create a legally valid will, as well as on alternative estate planning tools that can be utilized instead of, or in addition to, a last will and testament.
We also provide advice on complex areas of law that allow you to enhance the protections and control that a typical will can provide. For example, wills can be used to create testamentary trusts, and we will advise you on the appropriateness of taking such an action as well as on the technical requirements associated with this type of trust creation. This is just one of many examples of the ways in which our estate planning services go above-and-beyond in helping you create the appropriate estate plan for you.
