Elder Law Is For People Of All Ages

We plan a lot of things but rarely in writing. Sit back and think for a minute what will happen when you are old and incapable of taking care of yourself? What will happen to your dependents or hoe will you meet your medical expenses? Though these questions are inconsequential when you are in the prime of your health, they become too late to answer when you are past that stage. That is why people of all ages need elder law. They need to plan for the time when they grow old today.

I have been fortunate in my later years to meet Rebecca Doane, a lawyer with all the requirements I need in this part of my life. She is a great estate lawyer, very up to date in all the estate procedures. I have a family of five children, eleven grandchildren. She takes care of all of them for me, and she is always nice to be around. The staff she has in her office is really super.

We needed to have our estate, durable power of attorney, healthcare surrogate, and living will documents recreated as we have moved to Florida from another state. We consulted with Rebecca at the recommendation of our financial consultant and then hired her firm to do the documents. All was handled very well by Rebecca and her staff who we believe have integrity and are actually kind people. We very much appreciate Rebecca’s provision of additional detail in our living wills to ensure that our wishes would be understood and followed.

I highly recommend Doane and Doane to anyone needing tax or estate planning services. I have used them for everything from a simple Will to more complicated Trusts and they always provide remarkable guidance and advice. Randall and Rebecca have an in-depth knowledge of both accounting and tax laws and they took the time to make complicated estate planning understandable. Their caring staff made sure that every detail was handled thoroughly and completely and they are always there for me when I have questions or concerns. With more than 37 years in the business and the wealth of knowledge that comes with it, I trust them for all my family’s tax and estate planning needs. Doane and Doane is simply the best!

After procrastinating for many years about getting my estate plan in order, I finally decided to get down to business. I was referred to Randy Doane of Doane & Doane, PA by a friend. I was glad to note they possessed all my base-line requirements: Board Certified in Wills, Trust and Estates, taxation experience, excellent reputation, firmly planted in the area, boutique atmosphere, convenient location and initial consultations were complimentary. I arrived with the pre-conceived notion that my particular situation was somewhat convoluted. I was sure estate planning would pose a tremendous challenge. At my initial consultation, I had a chance to present my situation and verbalize my anxieties. Within that first meeting, Doane & Doane presented me with recommendations, options and fees. Because of their knowledge and expertise, my presumed difficulties were readily resolved. I was able to finalize my estate plan within a couple of weeks. It turned out to be a pleasant and informative experience. I have been back to Doane & Doane, PA a few times over the years to integrate into my plan some life changes that have occurred. Always .. . I am met with great care and concern for my overall situation and ultimate satisfaction. Always . . . I leave with the precious gift they promise at the first meeting: Peace of Mind! When I cross their threshold, I am often a glass-half-empty sort of fellow because that’s just who I am. When I leave the offices of Doane & Doane, PA, I am definitely transitioned into a glass-half-full sort of guy because I know the legacy I worked so hard to accumulate all my life will follow the path I desire. Thanks, Doane & Doane, PA. Peace of Mind is a beautiful thing!
