Choosing the right executor can ease estate administration

While going through the process of estate planning, people generally take time to consider the most important people and organizations in their lives. Once this assessment is made, it may become clear how assets and property will be distributed during estate administration.

Furthermore, many people may be uncomfortable discussing financial matters with loved ones, which can also throw a wrench in estate planning conversations.
