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.
