Proper Planning Isn’t Just About You

I settled in to my favorite table at my local coffee shop a couple of weeks ago, took a hot sip of coffee, and found myself shaking my head, “YES!” when I read Ms. Singletary’s article.

As an estate planing and probate attorney, reading the stories Ms. Singletary relays felt like meeting with clients. ¬†When a family comes into my office after the loss of a loved one, I try and do whatever I can to make that process as peaceful and efficient as possible. ¬†However, some things are already set in motion by the deceased that can’t be done, or undone, after their death.

Proper planning isn’t just about the person who dies — It is about the situation you leave for the ones you’ve left behind.
