Happy Holidays!

Wishing the happiest of holidays to you, our wonderful clients and friends.

Our office will be closed from Friday December 21st through Wednesday 26th and again from Monday, December 31st through Wednesday, January 2nd.  We will return on January 3rd (if we are able to pry ourselves out of our cozy houses by then.)     

Current clients are welcome to contact us via e-mail during this intervening time with the understanding that our availability will be limited so that we can celebrate with our families.    

Much cheer and many blessings to all!  We look forward to serving you in 2013.

Is It The End Of The (Estate Tax) World As We Know It?

While the Mayan calendar is predicting the end of the world as of December 21st, 2012, many estate planning attorneys are actually more concerned about what may happen with the federal estate tax exemption (which is scheduled to drop to $1M from $5M as of 1/1/2013 if Congress doesn’t intervene before then.)   

Then again, if the Mayans are right, it doesn’t really matter, does it?

Questions about your own estate planning?  Assuming that we’re all still here after December 21st, we can help!

 

E-state Planning for your Virtual World

 Will your Facebook account, online presence, and virtual world live on without you?

Here’s a great article from The Indiana Lawyer that addresses something many people don’t usually think about . . . estate planning for your “virtual world” (i.e. online accounts, social media, and websites). Passwords and logins can be committed to paper and shared with the personal representative of your estate or can even be saved in a digital format with access instructions.
