Are you over 50? Do you have a family?


If you answered yes to one or both of these questions you need to have three documents in place, your will, a power of attorney and appointment of enduring guardian. If you do not have these documents, your wishes could be overruled by the state. If you already have these documents but you filled them out yourself from a post office or prefab form, use your 30 minute free consultation to make sure that they are legally binding. Allanson & Associates can also assist you with contested wills and disputed estates.
