In a crisis such as this, having your important documents in place, such as an Asset Protection Trust, Living Trust, Power of Attorney, Health Care Proxy, Last Will and Testament, etc. is extremely important. In addition, Governor Cuomo has issued an executive Order that documents can be notarized using audio-video technology through April 18, 2020.
Estate, elder law and long-term care planning provides control and certainty during these challenging times. Now more than ever, it is important to have your legal and financial obligations secure and under control. Please feel free to call us with just questions or to set up an appointment.
In keeping with our commitment to community education and preparedness, we are designing some interesting and informative virtual seminars and podcasts. We hope that this will perhaps provide some diversion and education for our clients and the community during this time. We will announce these over the next few days and also post them on our website.
PLEASE check in with your neighbors, especially the elderly, during this time of increased solitude. Make sure they have supplies and food. To those already isolated, social distancing can be devastating. Our common goal is to remain healthy and defeat the spread of this virus.
It is important to remain optimistic and to follow the current protocols put forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. We wish you and your families the best of health. If you have questions or need information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Our prayers and thoughts are with everyone and we will get through this together.
