Reviewing the Laws

Estate Planning

At the very least, everyone needs a Will. If you have more diversified assets, we can assist you in establishing trusts and charitable giving plans. One of our attorneys will meet with you, listen to your needs, gain an understanding of your goals and then work with you to implement your plan. At Clark & Clark Law Group, LLC, we offer our services to individuals and families in order to make distribution of assets and caring for loved ones after death a hassle free process. We ensure your affairs are in order and protect your  legacy and assets for generations to come.

WHY DO I NEED A WILL?

In your will, you decide how your estate will be distributed and you may dispose of your property as you choose. Without a will, your estate is distributed to your heirs, who are determined in accordance with State law.

WHO NEEDS A WILL?

Every adult should have a properly drafted and executed will. Whether you have many assets or just a few, are married or unmarried, have minor children or no children, you should have a will.

WHAT IS A WILL?

A will is a legal document that directs how certain property that you own at the time of your death (called your probate estate) is distributed at your death. A will must be properly executed to be valid. Your will takes effect only upon your death. Once written, your will may be changed (if certain conditions are met).
