LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT

A last will and testament is a legal document that makes arrangements for your property to be distributed after passing. Individuals often decide to distribute their assets to their spouse, children, grandchildren, or educational institutions and charitable organizations after their passing. Furthermore, many of our clients hold dual citizenship and often have to face different jurisdictions. Our experienced attorneys can provide a holistic will drafting service that is binding in foreign countries.
