Last Will and Testament

[Last Will and Testament Photo]Everyone knows they should make a Will. Because of the importance of a will, an attorney should be consulted so that no mistakes are made. Since it is very possible that the will you make today will not be revisited for sometimes 20, 30, or even 40 years or more, you want to be absolutely certain that your will contains everything that you want it to, and that it is correct. For more information, these are some of the more important information to include in a will:

  • Invalidate all other wills
  • Pay debts and taxes
  • Who gets what
  • Name of Executor who will carry out the wishes of the deceased
  • Sign the will, acknowledging that the will is correct and valid

Above are things that should be included in a will, but what should be excluded? An explanation of what does not count as a will is:

  • An oral will
  • A handwritten will (that is written in your own handwriting), is not legal in most states
  • Video wills (these are not considered legal documents)

Client Reviews
I initially chose Frank because of how close his office is to the municipal court. Best decision ever. His staff was on top of the matter and he literally knew everyone at the courthouse. He was able to get my charge dropped to a lower penalty and is currently working on my expungement. Definitely recommended. R.L.
I hired Frank for help in purchasing a multi-family home. To make a long story short, Frank advised me against the initial property I had come to see him about and it was the best decision I could have ever made. He went out of his way to make sure I was making a wise /secure investment and saved me a great deal of money and grief, when he could have just went through with the initial deal. I would hire him again without a doubt. B.W.
Frank Marciano is a master of the law. He thinks outside the box and finds the best way to go about any issues that arise. His professional staff was great at touching base about my case and I felt at ease throughout the entire process. D.L.
