DECATUR, GA, October 10, 2022: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on the law firm’s website entitled “October Is Devoted To Promoting Estate Planning Awareness.” Ms. Pawley dispels some of the most common misunderstandings people have and explains the benefits having an estate plan provides.
Pawley writes, “The value of estate planning cannot be overstated.” She continues,
“I’m thrilled that I’m not alone in making every effort to educate my clients and anyone who will listen to the importance of having an estate plan. My efforts increase significantly during the month of October, particularly during the week of October 18 – 24 which is the official National Estate Planning Awareness Week.” She adds, “Here at The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, we have scheduled several events throughout the month to help raise awareness and encourage everyone to establish an estate plan.”
Pawley notes, “Even though this is one of life’s most important ways of ensuring your hard-earned assets get to those you want to have them, there are still so many people who misunderstand estate planning.” She elaborates, “I can’t tell you how many times over the years I have heard the following and so many more:
- I’m too young to have an estate plan.
- All my property is titled in joint tenancy with my spouse so I don’t need a will.
- Estate planning is only for the super-rich.
- Estate planning is too complicated and expensive.
- We did our wills right after we got married 30 years ago and see no need for further planning.”
“Maybe these statements sound familiar to you.” Says Pawley, adding, “Maybe you’ve said them out loud or thought them to yourself. Let me assure you, estate planning and asset protection is not just for the super-rich. Nor is it just for people who are “old.” It’s for anyone that has assets they want to pass on to heirs, friends, or charities.”
Pawley goes on the tell her readers about the three most essential documents in an estate plan.
