This has been quite an election cycle. Most people have expressed great concern about the outcome of the presidential election, and emotions and fears are high. I have jokingly told clients and attendees at public and private seminars that they need not worry – just hang on until the end of January. All will then be well. I have listened to all of the candidates, and each has promised that he/she will solve all our problems. WOW.
While entertaining at times, the political process has been frustrating, irritating, and threatening to many, if not most. Some predict the end of our democratic institutions; some have lost faith in almost all elected officials. Almost all worry to some extent how we will restore more peaceful times, and whether we will be able to exist as well as we have in the past.
With all the concerns, there are great reasons for hope. Notwithstanding all our problems, few nations allow such opportunity and security as we enjoy. The simple fact is that we can do much in our individual situations to protect ourselves and to progress.
The reason our firm limits its practice exclusively to estate planning is that we can truly help clients protect their assets, their legacies, their future plans, and even their hope. Obviously, not all estate plans are created equal, but with proper planning that includes provisions for very important recent changes in state and federal laws, people can be sure their future, and the legacy and estate they leave will be much more secure.
