How Do You Choose An Estate and Trust Attorney?


Hi Neighbors,

Just out of curiosity, how many of you have a will in place? Have you ever sat down and discussed what will happen to your property and belongings after you die?  It is not that hard to get everything set in order so you can make it easier for your family members to follow through on your wishes.  Remember, everyone should have something legal in place, not just someone who is wealthy.

Most people do not like to talk about wills and estate planning, but this is a very important subject, especially if you have children.

When you have decided to go ahead and choose an attorney take time to check them out a little first.  Ask friends if they can recommend someone they have used. Your bank may be able to refer someone. If you do not have anyone to ask, take time to check into what they specialize in, how long they have been in estate and trust planning.

Once you think you have found someone you may want to see if he/she ever had to represent someone in Estate and Trust Planning Litigation?  Will they allow you to speak to other satisfied clients?  Is he licensed in your state, or the state where you own property?

If all of this checks out, the last thing I would consider is if he/she is someone you can work with.  I know it sounds funny, but there are some people that no matter how good they are in their field, personality wise, I could not work with them.

How many of you have ever seen a family fighting over property and other belongings when someone has died?  I have and this is one reason to get these things in order now.  You will also know that your wishes will be followed through on.

Have an opinion?  Feel free to share it in the comments.

See you soon, At the Fence!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
