Dan Willard, an experienced Bethesda wills lawyer works with you to understand your financial position and your goals for your family and other potential beneficiaries.
DIY simple wills are almost everywhere. Because dying “intestate” (without a will) can cost a lot in taxes, a DIY will may be better than nothing. If you are thinking about writing a will, you probably have not made it through life simply by choosing the options that were better than nothing.
Intestacy When the terms of the will (or of a more comprehensive estate plan) do not cover estate property, that property may well be distributed to beneficiaries and in amounts you did not intend — all in accordance with the Maryland or D.C. Codes. When you work with Bethesda wills attorney Dan Willard, you can help manage these risks.
Wills and Trusts
The terms of a will can create a trust upon the death of the writer of the will. Testamentary trusts can allow more flexibility than a will alone. Trusts are, however, also useful outside of the estate planning context. A living settlor can create a trust as a means of maintaining some control over a gift or donation and for other wealth management purposes. – See more here.
Similarly, a revocable trust can be paired with a pour-over will for more flexibility than either document alone.
With attorney Dan Willard, as part of a comprehensive estate plan, your Will will be drafted by an experienced professional to meet your specific direction and may be paired with a trust to better achieve your vision.
