Bowie Will Attorney

Serving Individuals & Families in Anne Arundel & Prince George’s Counties

Having a last will and testament provides peace of mind. A comprehensive and well-written will outlines how you wish your property to be distributed to heirs and beneficiaries once you have died. Without a valid will, your estate will fall into the hands of a judge who is bound by state laws. This will be a judge who has never met you and has no idea what your wishes might have been. Furthermore, without a will, your estate is subject to strife and arguments among friends and relatives, which can lead to lengthy court battles and expenses.

At Adams Law Office, LLC, we understand that creating a will may be a difficult prospect. However, creating a will is a critical element of estate planning. Some individuals only need a will, while others need a more comprehensive estate plan that involves trusts and other legal instruments. Our firm is here to help you understand all your options and create the legal documents you need.

When Should I Write a Will?

If you are of sound mind and of legal age, you may write a will. If you have property that you want to be distributed after your passing, you should create a will. If you are married, or have children, and a lot of assets, it is advisable that you write one. If you die without a will, your property will be distributed based on Maryland’s estate laws. If you have a big family, writing a will may help avoid conflict when you are gone and it is not something you should draft yourself. Have an experienced will attorney by your side to ensure that all of your bases are covered.

What Are the Benefits of Making a Will?

A last will and testament is a legal document that provides clear instructions concerning the who, what, and when of your property distribution. This can include bank balances, real estate, business investments, personal belongings, vehicles, and more.

A will can also lay out instructions as to the care of any dependents or minor children you have, as well as the management of their inheritance. While it may seem that a will is only necessary for those with large assets and property, a will is beneficial for everyone.

The benefits of a will include:

  • Outlining who will receive which asset and/or how much, such as for bank accounts and investments
  • Naming a guardian for children (rather than allowing the court to do so)
  • Expediting the transfer of your assets and property
  • Sending gifts and donations to charities and organizations
  • Naming a trusted person to act as the executor of your estate, who will see that your wishes are carried out

Prevent Family Conflicts When You are Gone

To avoid challenges of your document by family and others, we recommend what is referred to as a testamentary will. This type of document must be written in special language, must be clear as to who is making it, must declare any previous wills as invalid, and must be signed by witnesses.

At Adams Law Office, LLC, we have created innumerable wills for clients throughout Prince George and Anne Arundel Counties since our inception in 2003. Your last will and testament will be created and executed as a legal document according to your explicit wishes, and we can ensure all appropriate assets and property are covered in your will.
