The time for future planning is not in the future. The time is now. You do not know me; however, I cannot stress the importance of doing this planning now. Too many people (my mother and myself included) wait until they are behind the eight ball. That is not to say that planning cannot be done, but rather why wait until a loved one or perhaps yourself is faced with having to do this planning when time is of the essence. Many people believe they have taken the steps and have their planning in order. With what I know now, I consider that the same as doing your own brain surgery. When I met with Wes to finalize things, he asked me “did we earn your money?”. I told him there was no doubt in my mind. I offered to write this letter with the intent that if it only helps one person to make a decision regarding planning, then it was well worth my time.
I would like to say that Dent-Coulson Elder Law was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend them to anyone. I hope that this letter may give you some comfort if you experience “sticker shock” and help to make your decision much easier. I hope you give Coulson Elder Law a chance to show you firsthand what planning they can do for you. If you do, I guarantee you will be writing one of these letters as well.
