The Wall Street Journal recently published an article on their website titled “The 25 Documents You Need Before You Die”. Attorney Law provided information regarding the importance of not only a will, but of a revocable trust. “Every will is like a compass that points toward the closest courthouse,” he says in the article.
He goes on to explain the in’s and out’s of sharing bank account information with loved ones before death. “If nobody ever takes any more out or puts money in, it becomes a dormant account and then becomes the property of the state,” he says.
Due to his expertise in the area of Estate Planning, Rick Law was sought out by the Journal in order to clear up these important questions regarding ‘end of life’ planning.
