At the start of a new year, it is inevitable that people will make one or several resolutions to accomplish in the year ahead. Unfortunately, in many cases, these resolutions fall by the wayside and are never completed. The start of 2017 is a perfect time to examine your personal situation and come up with a list of things to accomplish.
One important goal that should be at the top of everyone’s list is a review or creation of your estate plan, including a Will and/or Trust, Durable Financial and Medical Powers of Attorney, along with a Living Will/Health Care Directive. Creating these important documents will ensure that your wishes are carried out in the event something happens to you. Without these documents, important decisions regarding your healthcare and financial matters may be decided by someone you would not have chosen.
While many people believe that the creation of an estate plan is an onerous prospect, in reality, it is fairly painless process. At Zacharia Brown, we ensure that your time spent with us is both productive and easy so that we can prepare these important documents and put your mind at ease. Please contact us at 724.942.6200 or visit our website at PittsburghElderLaw.com to set up an appointment and keep this important New Year’s Resolution.
You will be glad that you did!
