Last Will and Testament - "Wills"

Professional Last Will and Testament Attorney - Lawyer, providing experienced Last Will and Testament legal services in Lakeland, Winter Haven, Bartow, and Polk County Florida.

A Last Will and Testament, commonly referred to as a "Will," is an official legal document which is drafted to provide your final instructions and wishes relating to how your property and assets are to be distributed in the event of your passing.

There are certain formalities required by the state for a will to be valid.  In addition, the specific language used can greatly impact the manner in which the estate will be administered.  For these reasons,  we strongly discourage the use of “do it yourself” wills which may be found on the internet.

Depending upon the size of your estate and the types of assets owned at your death, a last will and testament should  address the disposition of or issues  such as:

  • Your wishes concerning guardianship of your minor children or mentally / physically incapacitated dependents after your death;

  • The distribution of assets such as your home, your land, and other property;

  • Your motor vehicles, recreational vehicles and other possessions;

  • Proceeds  of certain life insurance policies;

  • Furniture, boats, and other property of value;

  • You investment portfolio, and shares of stock;

  • Retirement accounts;

  • Jewelry, artwork, and so on.
