Please...Get A Will Now!

Quote of the Day:

"I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness or ablities that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again".
William Penn

Dear Readers,
If the Terri Schiavo case didn't get you thinking about getting your legal documents in order... you may already be dead! Can you believe what that family has been through? Am I crazy for taking the husband's side on this one? Although I have a living will, let this article be written proof that I DO NOT want to live in a vegetative state, if ever it comes to that! I don't mind reasonable medical efforts be made to give me back a quality of life, but if I am brain dead... please please please let me go. Now, now... I know some of you may have some wise cracks about the "brain dead" comment and my present state of mind. But, I can assure you, I know exactly what I am doing (most of the time) whether you like it or not! :-)

Seriously, it is never too early to have a Will prepared, detailing your wishes... including a document for your medical care wishes. This is my personal soap box. My parents both died (without a Will) when I was very young and it was not a good thing. My brother and I were "wards of the court" until we were of legal age. Just remember... if you don't prepare a Will for yourself and your children, your State has one for you!

Here comes a blatant commercial:
If the potential cost of estate planning concerns you, check out Prepaid Legal Services. I've set up a website so you can go in and check it out and, if you choose, sign up right online. They will send you a membership package and the Will kit.

If you do nothing but get your Will prepared, it will be well worth it! For those of you who have not heard of Prepaid Legal Services, it is a fabulousl, cost effective, way of being sure your legal rights are protected everyday, in every area of your life. Click on the link and watch the video.

In summary, PrePaid Legal is the legal equivalent to health insurance, but much less expensive. For as little as $17-$25 per month (depending on what state you live in), you can have unlimited access to a top rated legal team, with specialists in every area of law. Did you know there are over 50 areas of specialty in the field of law? You can't just call any attorney about any matter. You need a specialist in the field of your issue if you expect good results.

Your membership includes unlimited phone access, letters written and phone calls made on your behalf, contract reviews, help with traffic tickets... and much much more! A Will comes with the membership at no additional cost, and you can have it updated every single year at no additional cost. If you are married (or have a domestic partner), they are covered by the membership and can also get their will prepared for just $20. It is a family membership, so your entire family is covered.

If after visiting the website you have questions, please e-mail me direct. I have personally used the service for about 5 years and love it. Worth every dollar... and alot more. I've called them, had them write letters, represent me for a traffic ticket and NEVER gotten a bill from the attorneys.

There is no long term committment. Just a $10 application fee and your first month's membership fee. Join for a month or two... or however long you want. It is a month-by-month membership. Personally, I will never be without it... and as long as I maintain my membership, my monthly fee will never increase.

Pre-Paid Legal Services has been in business for over 30 years, with over 1.4 million members. They are listed on the NYSE under the ticker sympol PPD. I can forward you copies of testimonial letters upon request

Check it out... you'll be able to rest easier knowing your legal matters are in order... and knowing that you have a legal team waiting for your phone call!

This is important. Your family is depending on you.

There's no reason to wait. Please do it NOW!

Have a great day!
