Many people postpone estate planning because they assume death is far off. But you never know when your time is up, so you must plan for the worst-case scenario. By the time they enter their mid-20s, most people have begun to accumulate assets or start families. To truly protect your loved ones and your estate, the Law Office of Patricia E. Tichenor, P.L.L.C. recommends creating your original estate plan at this time. Also, if you have not updated your estate plan in more than five years, we recommend a review.
