Exactly How You Want It
Think Ahead of Any Contingency
Wills are the most basic planning tool when it comes to managing your estate and Judith P. Kenney & Associates can help prepare it for you.
While a will may allow you to leave your property outright to your beneficiaries, it may also include trusts for your surviving family members, testamentary trusts where a living trust arrangement is selected, as well as a pour-over will which transfers the property to the living trust.
You can call us at 972-713-6133. We will be glad to walk you through the legal aspect of drafting a will.
