Wills, Trusts, & Estates Attorneys in Lafayette, Indiana
Whether one’s estate is large or small, it’s important that everyone exercise their rights to decide where their property should go when they leave this earth. A will or trust does just that. And once one passes on, the orderly administration of the estate or trust estate is something to be taken seriously.
Not to be forgotten are the papers that need to be in place while we are still living --- financial powers of attorney, a healthcare appointment to make healthcare decisions for us when we can’t make them ourselves, and a living will to take care of end-of-life circumstances. Call Withered Burns, LLP to speak with an experienced attorney in Lafayette, Indiana.
