Why do I need a Will?
Creating a Will is an important step in ensuring that your loved ones are provided for. 

With a Will in place, you can carefully direct your cash assets and possessions precisely as you see fit, leaving an official record of how and to whom you wish to leave your estate.
What can I put in my Will?
Your Will is a legal document completely unique and tailored to your wishes.  In creating a Will, you are able to direct your personal items, specific amounts of money, and real estate property to individuals of your choice.

Furthermore, your Will allows you to designate a trusted individual to carry out your last wishes just as you see fit.  This person, known as the Executor, can make sure that your designated loved ones and beneficiaries receive the property you intended for them, and also makes sure that anyone you have chosen to exclude doesn't.
Powers of Attorney and Advance Directives
While it is important to have your wishes carried upon death, it is vitally important that your financial and healthcare decisions be carried out in the event of incapacity or a medical emergency.

With a Power of Attorney you can designate a trusted person to act as your 'Attorney in fact', allowing them to make varying degrees of financial, medical, and care-taking decisions should you become incapacitated.  

With an Advance Healthcare Directive, you can direct a medical or care provider as to your final wishes in the event of a medical emergency regarding tube feeding, resuscitation, organ donation, or other critical medical decisions.
