The American Bar Association has reported that more than 55% of Americans will die without a will or estate plan. This is just one of many studies that indicate that a huge number of Americans, especially young Americans, don’t have a will in place.
We get it. We like to consider ourselves fairly young and like to at least hope that we still maintain a fair share of our youthful vigor! Like many of our friends, we are new parents and don’t have a complicated estate – and before we got into estate planning work we also mistakenly believed that since we didn’t have many assets, we didn’t need a will.
