Depending on your age you would either want to talk with an estate planning attorney or (if over age 55) an elder law attorney that does estate planning. Life these days is not simple and most everyone over the age of 55 should have Powers of Attorney in addition to a Will and, depending on assets, a Living Trust.
To find an attorney near you, look to this website or naela.org.
Best wishes for a Happy Holiday!
