Wills and Estate Planning

We are often told we must have a Will, a Power of Attorney and an Advance Care Directive but we are not often told why.These documents are important because they allow you to make decisions now about your future personal, medical and financial affairs.

All too often people put off arranging their personal affairs but is important to consider who will be responsible for making these decisions on your behalf.Choosing someone you know to be sensible, diligent and trustworthy to be your Executor, Attorney or Guardian of your children is the best way to ensure that your wishes are respected.
