Advance Planning Through Wills and Trusts

Everyone wants to be the master of his or her own fate. While we don't have much control over when we die or whether we become incapacitated, with proper estate planning, we have control over how our assets are distributed, who will make our health care decisions if we are incapacitated and how assets are protected from judgment creditors.
