August is Make a Will Month
Got Wills? August is "Make A Will Month!" 25 years ago last November, I was admitted to the practice of law and stood in the State Theater in Columbus to be sworn in by the Ohio Supreme Court. Since then, it has been my privilege to help many friends, colleagues, and clients with their estate planning and probate needs.
The importance of having your plans in place cannot be overstated. It’s not just about having a will or a trust. You need documents that you understand and that reflect your wishes, making sure that your assets are titled to coordinate with your plan, and perhaps most importantly, having a relationship with an attorney who can be there along the way. Typically, a brief consult can clarify your estate plan and pinpoint potential problems.
The loss of a loved one is devastating on its own. The additional complications that come with having no clear plan in place add emotional and mental stress that you don't need during such a time. Especially during these historic times of the pandemic, it is all the more important to have plans in place. We are always available for a courtesy consultation to create a plan or review your existing plan if ever there is a need.
It has been my honor to have worked with so many wonderful people all these years and we look forward to many more years serving clients. Thank you.
