Over the years, many of our Pennsylvania clients have asked this question. Certainly they are not the only ones who believe that wills are merely necessary for those with children. In fact, one study done in 2008 by PNC Wealth Management discovered that as many as 30 percent of adults with significant assets of at least a half-million have never drawn up wills.
Lack of this most basic estate document is even more rampant in the general population. One Harris poll commissioned by an attorney's group showed that 58 percent of adults never took the time to draft their wills.
