Legal Check Up, Hiring and In Memoriam

Dear Friends,

A few updates:

1. Lock in your Legal Check Up appointment ahead of our year end rush.

We are seeing more clients requesting to schedule a ‘Legal Check Up’ meeting with Attorney Dzialo, and suggest that you reach out to us now to discuss the impact of the election on your estate plan before our calendar fills up!

Just in the last month we have seen a 200% increase in the number of our clients wanting to update their estate plans.

We are still working remotely and are offering drive-in signings for our estate planning clients and would love to “see” you. We are so glad that many past clients have taken the time to review and update their plans while they are at home in the midst of this pandemic.

Many clients have opened new accounts, their children have married, grandchildren been born, etc, and all of these things should be reviewed in light of your estate plan.

Please email Noah Evans to schedule your appointment: [email protected]

Please note, our office will be closed on November 11th, November 26th-27th, and December 23rd-January 3rd.

3. In Memoriam: 

Justice Gants and Justice Ginsburg 

Our legal community lost two incredible justices this month.

Justice Ralph Gants served as the Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court since 2014.  He was revered for his commitment to racial and gender equality, and respected the justice system as the means of “repair[ing] the world.”  He is remembered as respectful, honorable, passionate, and kind.  Our hearts go out to his wife and two children.

Thank you, Justice Gants.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg served on the United States Supreme Court since 1993. She was the second woman, first Jewish woman, and longest serving Jewish justice on the Supreme Court. Justice Ginsburg was small in stature, a brilliant legal mind, and passionate about her beliefs. Like Justice Gants, Justice Ginsburg was passionate about justice and equality. Justice Ginsburg authored many court opinions and dissents. She became known for her dissenting opinions, as they often led to changes in law, and were a call to action for the President and Congress. She fought until her last breath to ensure equality for all genders, races, and religion. She loved fitness, the opera, her family, and the law. We can all be more like Ruth and ensure her legacy continues.

Thank you, Justice Ginsburg.

And thank you for your continued trust in our firm.

Please contact us  if we can help you.

Best,

Kristin
