What Is an Ethical Will?

An ethical will is like leaving behind your personal story for your family members to cherish. It may include photographs, recipes, objects of personal value, stories, and life lessons. Ethical wills may also explain why you made certain decisions in your last will and testament, including who received what from your inheritance.

An ethical will can be comforting both to the person who created it and to the family members who receive it after they have passed. Contact our talented legal team for more information on how to craft the right ethical will for your loved ones.
