On behalf of The Law Office of Wickersham and Bowers posted in Estate Planning on Thursday, April 30th, 2020.
Of all the legal services that are necessary for a person to engage in over the course of their life, wills and estate planning is the one that seems to be the most neglected. It is understandable when you really stop to think about it. No one wants to face their own mortality and casually make plans and fill out documents for the inevitable coming of the end of life.
But putting off this aspect of personal and professional legal instructions has never been a particularly prudent action. And with the Coronavirus spreading and creating a global pandemic, the assurance of tomorrow or next year has never been less certain.
This makes it even more urgent to enlist the services of an experienced estate planning firm such as Wickersham and Bowers to make sure that your end of life affairs are in order, while of course hoping that time is still far away.
Careful Planning During an Unpredictable Time
There is an old saying that goes “plan for the worst, hope for the best”. There is probably no better situation to apply that to than the one we currently all find ourselves facing. It is now more critical than ever to make sure that you and your families’ wishes are met should the unthinkable suddenly happen.
Ensuring Your Families’ Security
Take a moment and imagine the stress that so many families are going through right now with sick or dying loved ones. Many of them aren’t even able to visit their family or friends in the hospital or attend their funerals.
Knowing how much of a soul-wrenching burden that must already be, imagine if they also had to deal with a situation in which none of their deceased loved ones final wishes and instructions were legally documented. No one wants to put their family through that.
Waiting Is Never an Option
A will and estate planning is something that should never be ignored, even in normal times. But with the Covid-19 crisis introducing a new and dangerous element into our daily lives, the possibility of even a young, healthy person falling ill and dying within a matter of days is possible.
The legal experts at Wickersham and Bowers have been handling these types of matters for years and they will be glad to do the same for you. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
