10 Motivational Quotes About Estate Planning
I became an estate planning and probate attorney because I’ve always had a passion for helping people have a plan in place to protect themselves and their families from anything life throws their way. It’s a rewarding experience, and I feel like I am uniquely qualified in those matters because I’ve personally dealt with the tragedy of losing a loved one.
I’ve grieved unimaginable loss while at the same time trying to make sense of legal loose ends.
I know what it’s like to pour over your parent’s Will, and I’ve seen what can happen when those instructions aren’t there.
Accounting for all of life’s what-ifs isn’t something you have to do on your own. You have people like me in your corner who genuinely care about what happens next and will use our expertise and compassion to make that process easier.

If you’re on the fence about putting a plan in place, below are 10 motivational quotes that might help.

Having a plan for the future is the most important gift you can give yourself and your family. Granted, none of us will ever know for sure what is around every corner in life. And just thinking about the what-ifs — what if I were to die or become incapacitated tomorrow; what if my child with special needs has no one to care for her; what if all my “stuff” isn’t passed onto the right people — can be overwhelming. But having a plan that accounts for your family’s unique circumstances, puts your affairs in order, has concrete solutions to your concerns, lays out your wishes and goals, and protects your family’s future provides peace of mind for the road ahead.
