A living will gives you a voice in critical and personal health care decisions

Anyone who has ever witnessed the physical demise of a loved one understands the tremendous emotional and mental pain and sadness that are tied to such an event.

Avoiding fights over sentimental assets

In our last post, we began a discussion about the estate-related challenges currently being navigated by the family of the late Robin Williams.
