Reciprocal Powers of Attorney--They can be useful but many times require structure - 11/17/11 06:22 PM
I generally recommend reciprocal Powers of Attorney to all couples for whom I prepare Estate Plans. My 44 years of experience in the estate planning and probate area have convinced me that a properly drafted Power of Attorney can be a powerful cost-saving instrument in the event that a husband or wife sustains a stroke or other crippling disorder that limits their ability to function at the level they functioned prior to the disabling event. The Power of Attorney can permit the surviving healthy spouse to act for the disabled spouse without enduring the expensive and time-consuming process of being appointed (0 comments)
The Chosen--Learning from your Successes - 11/14/11 05:55 PM

I cannot tell you how many times people have consulted with me, and the first thing they wish to do is start a lawsuit against another person or entity. I can tell you, from many years of experience, that lawsuits are (4 comments)
All About Easements - 11/03/11 07:50 PM
Easements come in all shapes and sizes. Easements can be consensual and in writing, and there are times when easements are “prescriptive” and act in much the same manner as adverse possession. A well drafted easement can give protection to abutting properties. A poorly drafted easement can give rise to disputes and bad feelings among neighbors. There follow a few thoughts about easements, which you may one day find helpful to solve issues which arise affecting your real estate. 1. What is an easement? An easement is a right affecting property which affects usage but does not convey ownership, (5 comments)
