Elder Care Attorney, Mindy Felinton writes about how COVID19 is causing strokes in younger adults and how it is causing a spike in the demand for wills and estate plans. She encourages people to make sure their wills and estate plans are legally binding and will stand up in court.
(Gaithersburg, MD) Delray, FL April 29, 2020: Mindy Felinton, founder of Felinton Elder Law & Estate Planning Centers, has posted a new blog on her law firm’s website entitled “Make Sure Your Will Is Legally Binding And Meets Your Specific State Requirements.” Ms. Felinton understands the frenzy leading to the desire to get a will and wants to help people make sure their wills are going to be legally binding in their state.
Felinton writes, “Unlike anything that we’ve seen in our lifetimes, the COVID19 pandemic is causing people of every age to suddenly realize their mortality. As a result,” she adds, “there has been a steep increase in the immediate demand for wills as well as estate plans.”
As Felinton points out, “Initially it was thought that only people over 50 and in particular those with pre-existing health issues were susceptible to intense symptoms and death. However, as the virus has been spreading there have been new discoveries.” She emphasizes, “One of the most revealing is that it seems to be causing strokes in younger, seemingly healthy adults.”
Felinton acknowledges, “Following the established protocols and taking great caution when you have to go out for food and other supplies along with self-quarantining is integral,” and she adds, “yet there are no guarantees. Getting your desires down in a legally-binding will and/or estate plan is without question, more important than ever.”
