Estate Planning Attorney Definitions: Testator

“Testator” is a term you will hear over and over again in estate planning. It is usually referred to when talking about wills.

The reason you hear the word testator when you are talking about wills is because that is the legal term for the person that made the will.

Instead of saying “the person that made this will” the will simply says “testator.”
