Post Will Instructions to Our Clients

         I send all my clients a Post Will letter to give them several important reminders regarding the client’s Will and things related to it. I am doing this in order for them to have a permanent record and also that they may refer to this letter from time to time in the future in order to refresh the client’s memory. Please be sure, therefore, to keep this letter with the client’s copy of their Will.

         We have given the client the Original signed Will to take home.  The client should advise the Executors where the original Will is going to be stored. Additionally, they should provide the Executor with our business card and instruct the Executor to contact us prior to going to the Surrogate's Office or probating a Will. If they have a Living Will, please be sure to give a copy to their doctor.

         If they ever want to discuss the Will with me, I will be happy to do this with  the client at any time after scheduling an appointment.

         I recommend that  the client review the Will periodically in order to keep it up-to date regarding changes in their family, their property, their wishes, and the law.  I suggest that approximately five (5) years from the present time,  the client contact my office and schedule an appointment again so that we can review their Will together.

         This periodic review program should not prevent the client from considering the making of a change in their Will at any earlier date.  Changes should be made whenever the client believes such changes are necessary. A person's family, property and wishes may change over the years and for these and other reasons  the client should re-examine their Will from time to time in order to make sure that it will carry out their present wishes.

         I caution the client against making any marks upon their original Will because this can lead to a Will contest. If the client wants to make a change in their Will, they should contact my office and we will either make a Codicil (a short addition) to their Will or a new Will depending upon their needs and wishes.

         In the event that a death occurs in their family, may I suggest that  the client contact my office immediately in order to determine what, if anything, must be done in order to settle that person's estate. I also suggest that the client instruct their Executor and the members of their family to contact my office immediately, in the event of their death, in order to determine what, if anything, must be done to settle their estate.

         We thank  our clients for allowing our office to be of service.

         We welcome additional business and accept referrals for:

         1) Personal Injury- Car Accidents          

         2) Municipal Court, Traffic Tickets and DWI.

         3) Wills, Power of Attorney,  Living Wills and Estate Planning.

         4) Criminal cases

         5) Probate/ Administration of Estates

         6) Injuries caused by  Fall downs

         7) Civil Litigation for cases over $10,000. 

         We recommend you pass my office's phone number to your family and friends who do not have a current Will. Our Confidential Will Questionnaire is online at
