Since the outbreak of Coronavirus many of the elderly and people with an elevated medical risk who need a will or trust are choosing to avoid public places for fear of contracting the virus. This can make their estate planning difficult since law firms traditionally require office visits. The LivingTrustSource.com is among a growing number of lawyers who offer home and hospital visits.
If the virus continues to spread, lawyers must become more flexible to serve the estate planning needs of the most medically vulnerable segments of the public. Healthy people are also minimizing their exposure by avoiding the public whenever possible. It may be time for the legal profession to rethink the delivery of legal services in a market that’s been asked to stay home.
Some attorneys have already adapted to client medical concerns by offering alternatives to the traditional office visit. Flexible estate planning attorneys, like the Living Trust Source, are providing top-grade legal services without the need for office visits. Most work can be accomplished by telephone or email.
Attorney Kevin Walsh encourages members of the legal profession to be flexible in their approach to estate planning in light of client health concerns during the Covid-19 pandemic.
