Can I have a beneficiary of my will act as the executor? Can I also designate that person as the guardian of my minor children upon my death?
Estate Planning Attorney
The answer is yes to both questions.
Criminal Defense Attorney
These roles are not mutually exclusive and therefore the same person can serve in all roles.
My answering this question and your reading this answer does not create an attorney-client relationship. I only form attorney-client relationships upon a face-to-face meeting with prospective clients.
