Why Do I Need A Will?

Who needs a will? You would expect a law firm to say that "everyone always needs the will." In this case, however, that answer happens to be the correct one. Everyone has affairs that will need a resolution when they pass on; having a will to guide your beneficiaries makes sense for anyone in any situation.

At Derryberry & Naifeh, LLP, we have been working with people and families to resolve their estate planning needs for over 30 years. Our attorneys are conscientious and proactive in helping craft wills that withstand scrutiny and provide comfort and guidance to your family when you have gone.

What You Need To Know About Wills

The number one thing people should know about having a will is that it is more than just a list of who gets what. Wills can be more comprehensive and involve many moving parts. Our attorneys work with you to write a will that manages your assets and affairs in the manner that you deem best.

This will mean having a meaningful discussion about the future of your:

  • Personal effects: such as heirlooms and other property
  • Real estate: such as your home and any other land you possess
  • Business assets: such as equity in a business or your stock portfolio
  • Retirement accounts: such as a 401(K), IRA or any pension you may have

A strong will addresses how those monetary assets will be assigned to your children, stepchildren, grandchildren, nieces, nephews or however you define your family. This will remove the opportunity for a family dividing fight over your wealth and resources. We can also answer questions regarding trusts, probate and other estate planning issues.

A will, properly drafted and executed, is a product of care.
