1. New Year’s Resolution - Put your Estate Planning in order
You need a Will, Power of Attorney and Living Will/ Advance Directive.
Our state has passed a “Living Will” law, often called a “Death with Dignity” law, which allows a person to direct that heroic measures not be taken to prolong life in these unhappy situations. Modern medicine and machinery can keep a person alive for long periods of time. Unfortunately, a person is often kept alive in great pain or under circumstances that render him or her unconscious as to everything around them, while causing pain and anguish to the family.
This “Living Will” is not a substitute for a regular Will, which affects property rights. The “Living Will” is an independent document to be signed in addition to your regular Will.
Please let us know if you want a Will, Power of Attorney and Living Will/ Advance Directive prepared.
I would like to thank my clients and friends for another good year. This year was a great year for referrals. So many of you were kind enough to tell others about our services and recommend us. Since 1985, I have helped individuals and businesses with legal matters. With changing laws, it is important that your estate planning documents are updated to reflect your most valuable investments. As you know, all business must grow, and one of the safest ways to grow is to get referrals from satisfied clients. Thank you for referring friends and family. May the new year bring happiness and good health to you and those you love.
