Wills and Guardianship

Wills and guardianship

The ALP Law Firm encourages our clients of all ages to think about having a living will and a will for after they’ve passed. Far from being a morbid exercise, these documents give you the confidence that your wishes will be carried out as you desire.

A living will expresses your wishes in no uncertain terms when you’re unable to speak for yourself during an illness. You can stipulate whether or not to be resuscitated, who is to act as your representative in this decision, and includes the relevant language for hospitals and your doctor.

A will is a vastly more flexible and personalized document. You can specify how your property and assets should be disbursed, and what happens to anything you haven’t mentioned. You can also name your executor, or the person who will be in charge of following your wishes.

If you’re looking for advice on the writing of your will, please do not hesitate to contact an experienced and courteous attorney to help.
