2. Thank You to Family, Friends, and Clients for a Great Year.
I would like to thank my friends for another good year in 2012, despite the difficult economy. So many of you were kind enough to tell others about our services. 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 2013 bring happiness and good health to you and your family.
3.New Years Resolution - Put your Estate Planning in Order.
Add to your to do list having your Will prepared. You need a Power of Attorney and Living Will/ Advance Directive. 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.
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.
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, Living Will/ Advance Directive or Power of Attorney prepared. My friends have put this off years.
