As many people, I continued for many years to rely on a self-generated Last Will and Testament and to postpone taking the step to have a formal legal document prepared. However, I finally realized that what I had written was not nearly sufficient to handle the distribution of my assets to a range of family members and life supporting friends.
Jo Bess Jackson was instrumental in the creation of my Last Will and Testament as she understood the complexity of multi-family relationships and therefore how to realize the expression of my desires by addressing possible variables to family and life situations in the writing of the Will and complementary Trusts.
Ms. Jackson also created supporting directive documents that included a General Durable Power of Attorney, Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, Directive to Physicians, Declaration of Guardian in the Event of Later Incompetence, and Anatomical Gift. Together with the Last Will and Testament these documents form a statement that for me, provide peace of mind and the confidence that my personal wishes will be followed, both for my personal well-being and that of my heirs.
I have nothing but praise to offer to Jo Bess Jackson and her staff for their insightful, timely, and professional service in the creation of these important documents.
