My favorite aspect of my practice is explaining complex legal concepts to people in a way that is unintimidating and easy-to-understand. I often joke that because my parents were both educators, teaching is in my blood. During client meetings, I frequently find myself jumping up to the whiteboard to explain various aspects of estate planning, trust administration, probate, asset protection planning, and elder law planning. The response is always very positive.
I’ve heard time and time again that the number one reason clients put off scheduling a meeting or starting the estate planning process is fear – fear that there will be too much information to digest and that the concepts will be hard to understand. The mission of the Lawyer Playbook is to give you the basic X’s and O’s of estate planning law to prepare you to work with your attorney to accomplish your goals.
