FindLaw's June 2008 survey that found "60% of American Adults Don't Have a Will" continues to garner attention. Today for example, The North Virginia Daily cited the survey in a local piece about "Last Wishes" classes for those interested in learning the importance of creating a will.

Estate Planning is one of FindLaw's most popular topics and provides helpful information and resources for those who wish to create a will, trust, or power-of-attorney. Even a basic will outlining your wishes can be useful in the event it is needed and can help your family avoid a lengthy probate process.
