No one likes to think about suddenly dying or becoming incapacitated. That is understandable. But stop for a moment. What if this happened to you? How would it affect your family and your clients?
If you don’t prepare for your unexpected death, injury, or serious illness, imagine the consequences. At best the people close to you will face unnecessary difficulties and costs related to your clients’ legal affairs and to the financial aspects of your practice. Your family will have to cope with new responsibilities and financial strain when they are grieving or caring for you. Your clients, whom you have worked hard to protect, may lose rights, money, and their high esteem for you.
