A will is essentially the basic, "entry-level" device of the estate planning universe. Passing without at least a will in place (i.e., dying "intestate") all but assures you of having your assets distributed pursuant to your state's succession laws. If you're indifferent about that, then perhaps you needn't read any further. However, most people, of course, would prefer to have their assets distributed in accordance with their own unique preferences. Having an attorney assist you with this vital step can save your loved ones a good amount of future headache and expense
