Estate Planning

“Human decision making is complex. On our own, our tendency to yield to short-term temptations, and even to addictions, may be too strong for our rational, long-term planning.”  Peter Singer

As this relates to estate-planning, it is very easy to procrastinate and not get a proper and effective estate plan in place. It is easy to think short-term rather than thinking about what could happen to us during our lifetime that may cause problems for us, or family, or our loved ones as years go by. By having at least a basic estate plan in place, you provide numerous protections for both yourself and for your family and loved ones for years into the future.


One of the best pieces of advice we can give about estate planning is to get it done today as no one knows exactly what the future holds.
