Intestate Succession

        If a person dies without a will, the laws of intestate succession will dictate how that person’s assets will be distributed.  Sections 43-8-40 through 43-8-58 of the Code of Alabama set forth who will inherit from the decedent’s estate and how much.  For example, the surviving spouse will inherit a portion of the deceased’s […]

Living Wills

     While a will directs the distribution of your assets upon your death, a living will is a document that describes the type of life-sustaining treatment you would want only if you had a terminal condition or were in a state of permanent unconsciousness.  The living will directs your physician whether to withhold or withdraw […]

What is a will and do I need one?

       I will be writing a series of posts on various topics related to my practice and estate planning, the first of which is “What is a will and do I need one?”       Wills are the cornerstone of any estate plan.  A will is a document that directs the distribution of assets upon a […]
