When to Consider Estate Planning & Common Mistakes to Avoid

Some people believe that estate planning is an issue only for the elderly or infirm. Those people are wrong. In fact, every person should have an estate plan, including young, healthy individuals — especially those with minor children or other dependents.

If you are considering creating an estate plan, it is imperative that you speak with the experienced Palm Beach County estate planning attorneys at Bankier, Arlen & Snelling Law Group, PLLC.
