There is a tired old saying that “there are only two sure things – death and taxes”. Your last will and testament is a very critical document in ensuring that your wishes are carried out after your passing, whether those wishes relate to the disposition of your property or other matters of importance. Although “making a will” is something few people want to spend time thinking about, it is our experience that once it is done, clients feel a sense of relief and accomplishment. Northampton Law provides advice regarding the appointment of a Personal Representative (otherwise known as an “Executor”) to carry out the directives expressed in your will, the manner in which your estate will transfer assets to your named beneficiaries, and similar matters. Meeting with us to create your will includes the preparation of a health care proxy and power of attorney, two other legal documents that are critical to providing you with peace of mind should you encounter difficulty in the future concerning managing your health or other personal affairs.
