Is It Time to Check the Oil?

As you well know, close attention to maintenance is crucial to have a reliable, long lasting automobile. An Estate Plan is not much different than an automobile. It also needs to "Have its oil changed!" Without constant maintenance of your Estate Plan, changes can affect it and cause it to "break down." Some of these changes may be, but not limited to, the following changes in ...your personal situation-changes in personal and family relationships; your financial situation-changes in your assets which increase/decrease your net worth or new assets that need to be properly titled to be consistent with your estate plan; the legal environment (tax and non-tax) and; your attorney's experience (static vs. continuous improvement)-such as Lena Barnett who continuously strives to enhance her expertise and resources for the benefit of her clients.
