In Estate Planning, How Do You Choose an Executor of a Will? by casalmoreno

For many, choosing a successor to handle one’s estate is a sensitive topic in elder law. The common choice many make is to select one of their children or beneficiaries. But there are things to consider if you opt for this route.
