Many people mistakenly think that estate planning starts and stops with drafting a will. However, good estate planning encompasses so much more than just a will. If you are looking to develop a plan for not only who will receive your assets after your death, but who will make health care and other personal decisions for you if you ever become unable to do so for yourself, you need an attorney who understands that estate planning is so much more than just will drafting.
