Many people put off making a will out of discomfort they feel when contemplating their own eventual deaths.

Our lawyers can explain the function of powers of attorney and advance health care directives in addition to how to prepare an enforceable will. We can help you update your will after moving to Alabama from another state or after changes in your family such as a marriage or remarriage, a birth, an adoption or a divorce.
