Maybe It's Time to Make a Plan — Wakefield Law

If you’ve been reading our blog for any amount of time, you know that we try to steer clear of the fear-mongering approach to estate planning. We want our clients coming to us for estate plans from a place of empowerment, not fear. That said...these actually are scary times. Maybe it’s time to start making a plan.

https://www.wakefieldpllc.com/blog/maybe-its-time-to-make-a-plan?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=wakefieldlawpllc&utm_content=wakefieldlaw

Creating a plan is like weaving a safety net. You don’t want to be doing it when your hands are shaking and something truly scary is looming. You want to weave that safety net now, in moments of relative calm, so if the worst comes, you can focus on getting well, not worrying about “what if.”
