Everyone should have a will. Without one, the state of Washington will make the decision for you and distribute your assets according to the intestacy statutes. However, through a will, YOU have the opportunity to control how your property is divided. You can also add trust provisions to the document that require beneficiaries reach a certain age or meet other requirements before receiving the assets.
At the Law Offices of Douglas G. Anderson, P.S., we help clients draft wills as efficiently and effectively as possible. Our will and estate attorneys will meet with you to understand your wishes, and work with you to draft a will and determine if trusts or other documentations are necessary as well. We have more than 40 years of experience with a wide range of legal matters, and our goal is to make this process as easy for you as possible.
We will furthermore assist and draft medical and financial durable powers of attorney, living wills and health care directives to meet your wishes and needs.
