Many of the people who come to our office seeking a divorce are doing so for the first time. Some of them have a good sense of the shape of their marital estate--they understand their assets and debts, and only need their lawyers to help them reach a just and fair division of their assets and debts.
Estate planning isn't just about the end of your life. Many of us will go to a hospital at some point in our lifetime, whether planned or unplanned. While the matter may not be life-threatening, it could still require some observation, treatment, or even surgery. No matter how routine the trip or procedure may be, there is also the risk of complications and to prepare for such in advance is an extremely smart measure.
