How to Plan Your Estate Amid a Global Pandemic

Scott E. Rahn, Managing Partner at RMO LLP, is featured in CSQ, here’s an excerpt:

The advance of the coronavirus pandemic caused many people, particularly those who were most at risk of contracting COVID-19, to examine whether they had their affairs in order, and specifically whether they had their estate-planning documents in place and up-to-date.

For those whose estate plans needed attention, the shelter-in-place orders issued by local and state governments posed a dilemma: It made estate planning seem at once more necessary and more challenging. How does someone establish or update their last will and testament, living trust, power of attorney, and advanced healthcare directive—the four key documents of any estate plan—to ensure their affairs are in order without leaving their home and going to their estate-planning lawyer’s office?

The answer, as many estate-planning clients are learning, is that their estate-planning lawyers’ creative lawyering and use of a combination of technologies can allow them to rest a little easier knowing their estate plans are in place and their family and loved ones are protected.
