One of the best parts of my job is to present seminars – engagements where I have an opportunity to speak with and educate a lot of people! It is important for the public to have the right information so they can make educated decisions. And one of the key components that I want folks to learn is that there is so much information that the public just does not know.
One of my favorite pictures I present at the seminar is the ostrich with its head in the sand. By hiding its head, it is protected from all that ails of the world. We humans are not much better. The old axiom reads, “Ignorance is Bliss.” By not knowing what is out there, we feel we are protected, much like the ostrich.
Unfortunately, that thinking does not actually work.
At Morris Hall, we feel that planning your estate helps ensure that you and your loved ones are in a position to make a difficult time easier. Planning ahead helps ensure that the people who you want are able to execute your wishes, in a manner that you have outlined, and to do so with the least amount of delay and expense as possible.
But for us to help do that for you, you have to take the first step and see one of our attorneys. I like doing the seminars because I can get some more people to take the crucial first step; meet with me and discuss what they want to have happen.
I just wish I could do more.
Make your appointment today. Don’t be the ostrich. Hold your head up, and plan your future with the help of MH.

Morris Hall Can Protect You in Today’s Litigious Society:
We live in a litigious society, where over 1 million lawsuits are filed every year in America alone. Financial predators are looking for ways to take funds from others and often use litigation as their means to do so. At Morris Hall we provide your assets and your loved ones with important protections that can prevent financial predators from taking advantage of you. We do this through proper and current estate planning techniques. With an MH living trust, we can also protect your property, assets and loved ones from probate, estate taxes, gift taxes, creditors, Medicaid spend-down, conservatorship or guardianship proceedings, ex-spouses and more. A living trust also keeps your asset and beneficiary information private and secure to avoid giving financial predators information to use against you and your family. Without a living trust, this information will be made public. For those living in Arizona, we serve the areas of Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, Fountain Hills, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Prescott, Flagstaff, Sedona, Tucson, Sonoita, Arrowhead, Avondale, Goodyear and Tempe. In we serve the areas of , , Rio Rancho, White Rock, Alamogordo, Truth or Consequences and more. Contact us today at 888.222.1328 to schedule an appointment with an attorney in your area!
