Kerry Reilly, Esq.
Kerry has heard many people say “they didn’t believe they had sufficient assets to warrant getting an estate plan.”
Do you have a bank account, a pet, a car, a retirement account, a new house? Congratulations, you have an estate!
There is no “required minimum” for creating an estate plan. Money is just ONE asset that can be managed within an estate plan…it need not be the reason for the plan.
Kerry deeply believes in helping her clients “leave love behind, not logistics” (CBS Sunday Morning Quote – Amy Pickard, creator of Good to Go). Ultimately estate planning is just that – A PLAN! Think of it like your “out of office memo.” It’s a mechanism to ensure that people of YOUR CHOICE can act on your behalf (and/or your family’s behalf) when you can’t. Money is just one aspect of this, others are health care decisions for you, making sure your business carries on, making sure your family can carry on financially and health-wise.
