Why Have You Been Delaying Estate Planning?

Dealing with our mortality is one of the most uncomfortable things we do in life, so it’s natural to put it off as long as possible. It forces us to acknowledge that death is inevitable and that we have responsibilities to our family to protect our assets. For those of us with young children, it forces us to proactively determine who will raise and support them if we die before they become adults.

Estate planning also forces us to consider uncomfortable—even if unlikely—scenarios, such as how would I want my estate managed if I were no longer capable of managing my finances, what would we do if my spouse and I both died in a tragic accident, and even a doomsday scenario of what would happen if my immediate family and I died in a horrible disaster. For business owners, there are additional considerations that have to be carefully managed, such as succession planning and how will my share of the business be distributed to my heirs.

Our firm was established in 1927 and is managed by two brothers, myself and my brother Peter. Based in Belmont, and we have a stable workforce of highly qualified attorneys.
