Additional Estate Planning Considerations Resulting From Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We hope this newsletter finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy.

We previously noted that the coronavirus "lock down" is causing many of our clients to re-think their existing estate plans. In the past, certain estate planning documents (including a Last Will and Testament, a Power of Attorney Gift Rider, a Heath Care Proxy and a Designation of Agent for Burial Decisions) required two (2) disinterested individuals be present at a "signing" and attest to the fact that they saw that the document was signed. In these challenging times in which isolation is a safety imperative, this requirement was deemed an impediment by many people looking to commence estate planning.

Please see full Alert below for more information.
