It is very important to have a plan in place for when you depart this Earth. A key to that is having in place a Last Will and Testament. Having a will means you have control over who receives (or does not receive) what when you do pass. Without a will, your assets will pass to your heirs according to Georgia law, and those who you wish to receive assets might not do so. Paul Schofield has years of experience in drafting last wills and testaments that are specifically tailored to your individual needs and wishes. He makes the process as simple and stress-free as possible, so that you can relax in knowing that your loved ones will be looked out for when you pass.
