DECATUR, GA, January ••, 2024: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Top 5 Estate Planning Pitfalls to Avoid,” in which Ms. Pawley sheds light on the mistakes people most frequently make.
Pawley states, “No longer just for the wealthy, estate plans are becoming more mainstream especially considering the recent tragic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.” She continues, “Having an estate plan is typically great news for the beneficiaries. I say typically because all estate plans are not created equally, nor are all those who take the time to create a plan aware that there are many pitfalls that can undo their best intentions.”
According to Pawley, “Before creating an estate plan, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the following list of most common, yet easily avoided mistakes.” She emphasizes, “One of the most important ideas to remember is that there is no “one estate plan fits all” template. Estate Plans are customized for uniquely individual circumstances. “
Topping Pawley’s list is procrastination and thinking creating an estate plan is a do-it-yourself project.
