Estate Planning 2017_11

Let’s talk about Tax Reform and then talk about what you need to do the rest of this year. Tax Reform proposes to END the federal estate tax. Finally, estate planners can concentrate on family concerns instead of taxes. When I do estate planning I follow my motto, ease and effectiveness. That means it is quick and economical for you. How can I accomplish that? I am an Accredited Estate Planner. I have taught Microsoft Word and Excel professionally. As corporate counsel for a national software company, I earned certificates in Visual Basic, the software that runs Microsoft Word and Excel. So I program Word and Excel to produce documents to do what you want. I do not send you home with two inches of documents that you don’t understand.  My approach benefits and protects you. 
I create your documents quickly and accurately, using provisions some of which I developed with my father, a former Probate judge. Using VBA programming, I enter client information and with the mere push of a button, the program enters clients’ names and information almost magically into Trusts and other estate documents. With the programming, I search out keywords and replace them. I check documents for spelling and grammar.  I don’t use a paralegal. That means you don’t have to pay for a paralegal and you don’t have to put up with their mistakes. As a licensed lawyer and Accredited Estate Planner, I understand my documents and the law.
Some lawyers pay high prices for document assembly programs created by out of state “experts.” Their paralegals use these programs to create massive documents designed to work under every possible circumstance. This means that you end up with language covering a business whether or not you have a business. These documents come in large notebooks with large prices.
As large and expensive as these documents are, they are only as good as the person that makes them. If most of the work is done by a paralegal, it is tempting to rely on the paralegal and not review the document carefully. For example, I reviewed one of these impressive notebooks in which a child with mental disabilities was to receive half of his mother’s estate outright when she died. This was not communicated to her and she did not intend it. She intended that his share remains in trust where it could be protected by the trustee. I corrected it for her. Don’t let this happen to you!
