Helping You Wisely Address Your Estate and Incapacity Planning Concerns
While most individuals are not comfortable considering their own mortality, developing a comprehensive estate plan requires it. An estate plan is a collection of documents that clearly describe your wishes as they relate to how your assets are distributed after death or who will make financial decisions in your stead should you become incapacitated. Contact the Jefferson City estate planning attorneys at Newman, Comley & Ruth P.C. for legal advice and guidance.
