A will is a legal document that declares the person or people that are named to manage an individual’s estate. The declaration also provides for the distribution of that individual’s property at death. In layman’s terms, a will states how a person’s assets (real estate and personal) are to be divided after death.

When the court speaks of Real Property, it is referring to:

  • Land
  • Property permanently affixed to land (buildings)
  • Property contained within the land (minerals, metals, gems, etc.)
  • Property growing on the land (crops, trees, etc.)
  • Interest in property (life estate, remainder)

Also included in a will is personal property. Personal property includes both tangible and intangible assets. Tangible assets may include:

  • Automobiles, trucks, etc.
  • Jewelry
  • Clothing
  • Furniture

Intangible assets include:

  • Notes of indebtedness
  • Securities
  • Leases

*A lawyer may charge a flat fee for specified legal services, which constitutes complete payment for those services and is paid in whole or in part in advance of the lawyer providing the services. If agreed to in advance in a writing signed by the client, a flat fee is the lawyer's property on receipt, in which case the fee shall not be deposited into a trust account under Rule 1.15A. The written fee agreement shall, in a manner that can easily be understood by the client, include the following: (i) the scope of the services to be provided; (ii) the total amount of the fee and the terms of payment; (iii) that the fee is the lawyer's property immediately on receipt and will not be placed into a trust account; (iv) that the fee agreement does not alter the client's right to terminate the client-lawyer relationship; and (v) that the client may be entitled to a refund of a portion of the fee if the agreed-upon legal services have not been completed.
