Last Will and Testament Lawyer

Draft an Enforceable Will with Estate Planning Attorneys in Worcester - Call (508) 219-6264

Having a last will and testament is vitally important as the foundation of your estate plan. While deciding whom you want to leave your assets to seems like a simple undertaking, a will which hasn’t been drafted by a legal professional can be difficult or impossible to enforce. Estate planning is a complex field of law and should be handled by a skilled attorney familiar with Massachusetts state laws. If you go the do-it-yourself route by downloading forms from the internet, you can easily overlook certain details which would nullify your will. This can result in heated disputes among your beneficiaries in the future. Without a valid will, your assets and property will be distributed according to probate law, which might not be exactly in line with your wishes.

At The Law Office of Polly A. Tatum, we can help you draft a detailed, well-written will that meets state requirements. Polly A. Tatum, our estate planning lawyer in Worcester, has over 20 years of experience, and provides personalized solutions for wills, trusts, and estate planning.
