At Gerard, Ghazey & Bates P.C., you don’t have to do it alone.
The term “estate” conjures visions of great wealth, huge homes, sprawling land, thousands of possessions – but that is far from always the case. Everyone has an “estate” – it refers simply to everything you own, as well as whatever happens to be in your various accounts. Big or small, your estate is eventually going to need to be accounted for and distributed according to your wishes.
