The escalating COVID-19 pandemic has many of us thinking about the health and wellness of our families. Fortunately, most people are taking responsible measures to slow the spread and minimize the impact the virus has on their health and the health of those around them. We should all be doing everything we possibly can to warrant our safety.
In the face of all this turmoil, it is important to consider securing the proper legal documents to ensure that someone has authority to make healthcare decisions and handle financial matters for you in the event you are unable to do so yourself and that your loved ones will be taken care of should you pass on. While many individuals may have a basic estate plan in place, their estate plan may need updates or revisions. And for those who do not have legal estate planning documents, which should include a well thought out incapacity plan, now is a GREAT time to focus on getting documents prepared! Therefore, we are here to help.
How We are Handling COVID-19
At Sandin Law, we take our clients health very seriously and we realize our clients’ legal needs persist even though things may have to be done a little differently as we keep the health of our clients and employees a top priority. In order to meet your needs while taking the necessary steps to protect your well-being, we are offering the following:
- Virtual meetings via video conference or phone;
- When in-person meetings are necessary, we limit the number of clients in our office to two at a time, and of course, we follow appropriate social distancing protocols;
- Curbside signings and document pick up; and
- Remote notarization.
While the current state of the world feels outside of our control, taking the proper precautions and planning for the worst-case scenario doesn’t have to be. It’s time to take charge of your financial and medical health and schedule a time to review your current estate plan or discuss setting up an estate plan!
As always, we want to remind you that we are here for you whenever you need us.
