I personally respond to all email inquiries. My phones are available 9:00 am- 5pm. I enjoy being a resource for others. However, there are areas of law that I cannot answer or handle. (Taxes, Corporations, etc). Also, if I think there is coercion or indue influence, I won't take the case at all.Estate planning is more than keeping your sister-in-law out of Mom’s purse. It is looking forward and planning for your own financial security when you need care. I have experience in family dynamics in including sibling rivalry, BPD, NPD, mental illness, addiction, and financial irresponsibility.Concerned about Probate costs? A trust protects your property by transfer of property directly to your beneficiaries without probate. Special Needs Trusts protect the disabled from losing their benefits. Irrevocable Trusts protect assets in a divorce for the beneficiary. Many options are available.Think of the laziest, most free-loading relative who will gleefully sell off your possessions for profit. (Every family has one) What about medical treatment? Who takes your ashes, your 401k or investments? Updating your listed beneficiaries allows your bank accounts to transfer without probate.
