Whether you are worth $50,000 or $50,000,000, you need to consider who would make health and personal care decisions on your behalf in the event you become unable to make such decisions. While the basic tools and documents for estate planning (wills, trusts, powers and medical directives) can be found in a number of places, the value of an estate planning attorney is more than just drafting documents.
