Is There Such Thing As A Simple Will?

We constantly hear the words, All I need is a simple Will. That’s it.”

I understand that, and we pride ourselves in making things as simple and as easy to understand as possible.  In that regard, all of our Wills are “simple” and easy to understand.  After all, if your heirs cannot figure out what you wanted based on what your lawyer wrote, then what good is your Will or Trust?

The fact is, and you probably know this from your own experience, sometimes it is harder to write something simple and concise, than it is to go on and on for pages.  I can assure you that what we prepare for you will be simple and easy to understand.

That is not to say that what we go through in talking with you about your family and financial situation is not thorough and intense.  In fact, almost everyone that walks out of my office after the initial visit remarks that I brought up things that they had not considered previously.

So, to answer the question, “Is there such a thing as a simple Will?”  I have to say yes, it will be as simple and easy to understand as I can make it.  BUT, it will also be thorough and cover as many contingencies as we can reasonably anticipate.

The complicated part is not writing or drafting the Will, but rather meeting with you ahead of time to go over your personal, family and financial affairs in great detail to make sure your wants and desires are clearly set forth in the appropriate form, and thereafter understood and honored by your survivors. Isn’t that what you really want? Isn’t that what you are paying for? The document itself, meaning the Last Will and Testament that we prepare for you, will be comprehensive, complete, and a sound road map for your family to follow after you are gone. Will it be a “simple” Will? It will be easy for a non-attorney to understand, and it will definitely be as simple as we can make it, and still cover all of the bases.

Experience shows that taking short cuts up front quite often leads to complications down the road, meaning after you are gone. Our primary objective is to avoid these future complications by drafting the proper documents upfront, with a secondary goal of making them short, concise and easy to understand, in other words, SIMPLE.
