If you ask any Las Vegas resident what is the one essential piece to have in place as part of an estate plan, chances are most will give you the same answer. We're speaking, of course, of a will. It's such a fundamental document that many may think they can simply "set it and forget it" -- that once they've written up their will, matters will take care of themselves.
If only this were true. There are any number of additional measures Las Vegas residents can take, in addition to preparing a will, that will help serve as the foundation for a strong estate plan. We've talked about a number of these on our blog before. But if there's only one thing done besides drawing up a will, it should be having a conversation with one's heirs about the contents of that will.
