At Russo Law Group, you’re not just a client, you’re family! Did you know that as a client of our firm, you can give an immediate family member a Family Plan Coupon? Our goal is to forge a bond with you and your entire family. Your loved ones can apply the coupon toward their own comprehensive New York estate plan! It includes a consultation and six (6) very important documents offered at a flat fee. Those documents are:
- Last Will and Testament
- Durable Power of Attorney
- Health Care Proxy
- Living Will
- HIPAA Authorization
- Burial Designation
Why are These Documents Important?
A last will and testament (will) describes what you want to happen to your assets upon your death and may determine who will take care of minor children.
A durable power of attorney lets you designate a trusted person to handle your financial and property matters if you are not able to do so yourself. This may be due to travel, illness, or injury.
A health care proxy allows you to name a trusted person to make medical decisions for you when you are incapacitated by illness or injury.
Living wills address your preferences for care and treatment in medical emergencies and at the end of your life. It includes instructions for your health care proxy to follow.
Copies of HIPAA authorizations are kept at your doctor’s office. You will want to add your health care proxy to the list of people allowed to access your medical records to make informed decisions.
Burial designations can appoint a person to manage the disposition of your remains and detail your wishes for things like burial or cremation and where and how your funeral service will be handled.
How it Works
Recently, one of our clients gave their adult children the family plan coupon as a Christmas gift, which enabled them to plan for their own growing families. This was a valuable gift to them and something they were putting off due to the everyday challenges of raising a family.
If you’re interested in learning more about our Family Plan Coupon, please contact your estate planning attorney or case manager for a coupon to pass along to a family member. You’ll be helping them protect their future.
