Although a recent in-depth article written by industry insiders spotlighting estate administration touches on many points, its bottom-line message for would-be planners is both pointed and simple.
That is this: Count on challenges to arise down the road for heirs and loved ones in the event you don’t engage in timely planning, or happily dismiss the likelihood of such obstacles occurring if you did.
That’s pretty direct, right? And obvious, too, which is comforting for legions of individuals and families in Pennsylvania and nationally who see estate planning as akin to something like advanced mathematics.
The authors of the above-cited piece stress that, when attended to in a timely and tailored way, estate planning can be much ado about nothing. All material goals can be promoted and safeguarded when procrastination is avoided and a planner takes the opportunity “to sit down with an estate planning attorney.”
Indeed, there can be a lot to consider, but planners should remember to take a breath and simply attend to the required elements. The legal team at the established Quinn Law Firm in Erie routinely interacts with diverse and valued clients in a relaxed and goal-promoting environment that helps planners fully identify what is important.
