Mark Matthews is an attorney focused on estate planning, elder law, veterans law, and firearms law. Twelve years of practicing law; former Major in U.S. Army JAG Corps. NRA rifle marksmanship instructor and one of the original 10 guys that started Appleseed Program.
He joins us today to discuss the need for folks to have financial powers of attorney and advance medical directives so someone is appointed to make decisions for them if they are incapacitated, so the family doesn’t have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on court proceedings to appoint guardian/conservator.
He also discusses the need for wills to avoid family tearing itself apart over physical assets. The need for long-term care planning and possible Medicaid planning. Along with the questions to ask a prospective estate planning legal firm to make sure you are making a good choice of legal services.
