Estate planning can be a process that many people put off as long as possible. Let’s face it—few of us really relish the thought of facing our own mortality. Often, the task of estate planning becomes something we would rather avoid than face head-on. Then, perhaps a loved one passes away without an estate plan, and we see—up close and personal—the chaos that is left behind when there is no direction from the deceased. Hopefully, you come to the realization that estate planning is a task that should not be put off. Life is full of unexpected events, and you would never want to leave your loved ones to deal with questions regarding your estate while they were grieving your loss. Fortunately, there is a relatively painless solution that comes in the form of estate planning. Attorney James A. Miller can help you through each step of estate planning, ensuring the final plan is one which follows Massachusetts law while being tailored uniquely to your specific life situations.
