Why Is a Power of Attorney and an Estate Plan Critical at This Moment in Time?

During the Coronavirus Pandemic, we are all sharing in the concern for our families, businesses, and communities. In this era of social distancing we are finding new ways to stand together.

At Waltz, Palmer & Dawson, (“Navigant”) LLC we are taking precautionary measures to keep our employees and our clients safe. We are holding the majority of client meetings by phone. In some instances, we are executing important legal documents, such as Powers of Attorney for Health Care & Property, Last Wills and Testaments, Guardianship Directives and Trusts in person as these documents require signatures in front of a notary and witnesses. For those meetings, we are using our conference space and distance with care and taking steps to disinfect our office space, including door handles, chairs, tables and pens that we have for you to use for the signing so you feel comfortable knowing every pen is disinfected before and after your use. Employees are using sanitizer on their hands and work spaces throughout each day.

We are all anxious about our health and financial well-being. We are worried about being exposed to contracting the virus and spreading that exposure to others. We are all confronting our mortality and asking what will happen if I get sick and become incapacitated? Or worse, what will happen if I die? While we cannot prevent bad things from happening, we can help make the outcome better. We urge you to plan for your family with care. We are here to help.
