COVID – 19 “Back to School” -  Preparedness for Teachers, Other School Employees, and Students (age 18 or older)

Are you a teacher, other school employee, or a student (age 18 and older) heading "back to school" this fall?  Or, do you have a loved one who meets this criterion?  During the ongoing pandemic, it is important for those heading back to school to be prepared for an unexpected illness (or accident), which could prevent one from being able to make his/her own health care and/or financial decisions.

For a limited time, our law firm is continuing to offer basic “Back to School – COVID-19 Preparedness Packages” for teachers, other school employees, and students (both college and high school students over age 18). For those needing more comprehensive estate planning, we will apply a credit in the full amount of the fees paid for a basic “Back to School” package towards a comprehensive package you choose to do within one year of your “Back to School” package.

To learn more and/or to schedule an initial "virtual" appointment with one of the following attorneys: Connie Renzi; Katie Lenert; or Brandan Rissman, contact our office.
