At Perez Law Group, PLLC, we’re obviously attorneys, not doctors. We share your fears and uncertainty about the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, perhaps more than others, we understand the value of taking precautionary steps now. Lawyers are aware of the risks surrounding us daily, as well as the human tendency to downplay those risks while life is good. We often find ourselves having to convince clients to establish an estate plan to prepare for scenarios just like this — the unthinkable.
Our estate planning attorneys recognize the impulse to ignore preemptive planning. We see it every day in people unwilling to confront the possibility that they will not always be healthy or that they will ever need to arrange for their care. Just as drafting a will makes some people worry they’ve jinxed themselves, confronting the reality of this virus can feel like we’re giving it power over us. It’s a natural reaction to avoid the negative.
We write this blog to inform you of important measures that should be taken. We need to properly plan and be prepared. Perez Law Group, PLLC can help you be prepared and set up your estate plan. We can draft living wills, powers of attorney, and other healthcare directives to outline exactly what treatments you approve and who can make those important decisions if you are unable.
Finally, despite the statistics, the ever-changing public guidelines, and our encouragement that you have your affairs in order, please don’t worry too much. The intention of any professional advice, medical or legal, is not to cause panic, but to inform. We want our clients safe, healthy, and at peace, and we firmly believe a realistic outlook is in service to that end.
