Wills & Trusts


WHY Do Estate Planning Rather Than Just Drafting a Will or Trust?

Many people might say that estate planning involves wills, trusts, asset protection, planning for disability or death. And it does include all those things, but those things are just what we do. More importantly, at Edwards Group, we ask the question: WHY do estate planning?

Assets: Money or Things

Commonly referred to as assets, things such as your house, farm, business, savings accounts, IRAs, life insurance, gold coins, or an antique car are just a few of the things you may have worked very hard for. When you’re gone, what do you want done with these things you have accumulated? What good would you hope those things could do for others? How could your money or things be used to help someone, ease suffering, bring joy, or give someone a leg up? These are all important questions to answer with effective estate planning.

Legacy: People or Causes

Who are the people or causes that are most important to you? Your spouse? Kids or grandkids? Your church, the Salvation Army, local theater or arts organizations, or an environmental cause? How will the money or things you have be used when you’re gone to reflect what is most important to you?

We help clients everyday who want to create an effective plan to transfer their wealth, creating a legacy that will last long after they are gone. Learn more about estate planning at one of our FREE  planning workshops  or by signing up for our  weekly e-newsletter.

The Myth of a “Simple” Will

"I just want a simple will." We hear this a lot. The people who say it generally assume they have a "regular" family with straightforward assets. They don't want to pay a lot for elaborate documents they don't understand. They just want a last will and testament. We...


What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries,

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English.

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Where can I get some?

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable.
