Sara and Stasia Demos Mills (www.demosmillslaw.com) sit down once again for our fourth and final video in our estate planning series. In this video we discuss what to do with an estate plan if you have one. We give suggestions on where to keep it (safe deposit box, lock box, or, the freezer?! - maybe not that last one) and who to share it with. Finally, we discuss the importance of reviewing and updating beneficiary designations on things such as life insurance policies and retirement benefits.
Thanks for watching and as always, let us know if you have questions!
Stasia Demos Mills (www.demosmillslaw.com) and I are back for the third installment in our video series: Why can't I just download a will from the internet? In this video we discuss why we advise people not to just download a will from the internet. We explain that the value you get coming to an attorney is not just a stack of documents, but it's the relationship you build with us. We want to get to know you and understand your unique situation so we can custom-tailor an estate plan to match your exact situation. We also want to create a long-term relationship with you and your family so that if you have a question in one, three, or five years, you can call us and we can easily step in to help. Another huge advantage of having an attorney is the fact that we are held accountable to you through our professional liability. Non-law firms that provide estate planning documents have no accountability and really, no incentive to do a good job.
Estate planning is probably more affordable than you think! Visit our estate planning page to learn more about our services.
Stasia (www.demosmillslaw.com) and Sara are back for our second video episode! We find that most of our clients come to us when they have young children because they want to do their best to protect and provide for them. In this video we try to answer parents' most frequently asked questions: how does a guardianship work for my client? What is a trust and why is it important? What document do I need in place?
As always, remember that we are not giving legal advice! If you want to ask specific questions about YOUR unique situation please contact us to set up an appointment!
