Everyone's estate planning needs are different, but everyone needs an estate plan. Estate planning does not only involve putting together a will which leave gifts to friends and family upon your death. An equally important component of completing an estate plan is creating powers of attorney that name individuals to make financial and medical decision on your behalf while you are alive but unable to act. A comprehensive and appropriate estate plan ensures that your wishes are followed during life and after death. This podcast with Estate Planning attorney Brian Warens of Lavelle Law will explain the importance of a well rounded estate plan and how to use one properly.
