Keystone Law Firm NEWS February 2018

DON’T END UP IN LEGAL LIMBO If you read this newsletter, you know that Keystone Law is not afraid to do things differently. Sometimes that means changing the way we play the game. Other times, we have to change the game itself. That’s what we’re doing with Emergency Legal Agent™, a new program we developed that will be rolling out this year. It is our unique solution to a problem we see frequently in the estate planning community — the gap in legal coverage that occurs in the wake of a catastrophic life event. An emergency, like a car crash, can leave you suddenly incapacitated, unable to make legal decisions. Hopefully, you have an agent named in your will who can look after your health and estate while you are incapacitated. However, those documents are hundreds of pages long, usually kept in a safe place. Unfortunately, we see this happen all too often. A tragedy strikes and suddenly a person’s estate is stranded in legal limbo until the documents can be retrieved and interpreted. What if you have pets that need to be taken care of? Or valuable property that needs to be secured? Without documentation proving they have permission to access your house, your family could end up being blocked from everything. Thus, we’ve developed the concept of an Emergency Legal Agent™. This is a single- page document, designed to be given to three of your emergency contacts that live close by. They needn’t be your permanent legal guardian. This document simply gives the holder the right to talk to lawyers, doctors, and police on your behalf in the event of an emergency. It’s designed to be simple, but effective. A grab-and-go legal document for the 21st century. We are offering Emergency Legal Agent™ to our VIP Clients™ at no extra cost, and plan on making it available to the public later this year. It isn’t a replacement for a rock-solid estate plan, but will get you over that legal gap in an emergency. It’s just one more way we’re making estate law work for you.
