As you know, I was in Australia for most of last month, enjoying the sights, sounds and tennis Down Under! It’s summer there right now, and I took full advantage of the beautiful weather. I especially enjoyed wine tasting in the beautiful Yarra Valley. These photos were taken at the Tokar Estate Winery & Restaurant. It was a fantastic, refreshing vacation. I’m happy to be back, and I’m ready to join my team in assisting you with your estate planning, probate or business law needs!
Sherry and I are honored whenever we are asked to present at continuing legal education (CLE) programs for our local Bar associations. And especially so if we are asked to speak on ethical issues. On March 7, Sherry will do just that – presenting at the Washington State Bar Association’s Readmission course on Professional Responsibility and Client Communications. This is an ever-changing topic and one that is especially important for attorneys. If you are an attorney interested in attending, please click here.
Sherry is also continuing her work on the board of the Mother Attorney Mentoring Association of Seattle (MAMA Seattle), and attended an energizing board retreat last month. She is excited about the plans for expanding the mentoring, networking and community-building opportunities for the organization’s members in the coming year.
Most people think it’s necessary to name a family member as their personal representative or power of attorney in their estate planning documents. But is it? In this blog post, Stacey explains why you should choose people you trust and who possess the necessary skill set to do the job.
Are you the sole owner of your business? In this post, Sherry discusses why it’s imperative for a sole business owner to have a plan in place just in case an unexpected event might render them incapacitated.
In her final post regarding business succession planning, Sherry discusses why a family business poses some unique challenges when planning for the next generation’s succession.
