The Law Firm of Evan H. Farr, P.C.’s “Everything Elder Law” blog has been selected as one of the top 3 estate planning blogs in the country, by OvidLife. OvidLife, a company that focuses on financial and retirement matters for seniors and retirees, compiled its list of outstanding estate planning blogs based on extensive research and staff recommendations. The blogs being recognized have received particularly high ratings, based on the helpful up-to-date content and resources to help consumers better understand complex processes.
In a congratulatory letter to Mr. Farr on receiving this honor, OvidLife recognized Mr. Farr’s blog as one of the “great estate planning and probate law blogs that we’ve come across.” Heather Wolinski, author of OvidLife’s article about the top blogs stated that the Farr Law Firm’s blog was chosen because it contains “topics and articles include relevant helpful information to anyone thinking about estate planning in the United States.”
When asked by OvidLife why he works in estate planning, Mr. Farr said that he “believes that it is of utmost importance that people plan in advance to get their legal and financial affairs in order, to ensure their wishes are met, and to spare their loved ones from the agony of having to do so in an emergency situation and with no guidance…” Mr. Farr also mentioned his favorite blog post, which is about Filial Responsibility, which involves adult children being financially responsible for parents who are unable to pay for care. According to Mr. Farr, “Although laws of this sort were drafted centuries ago, many are unaware that these laws have recently gained new momentum.” For additional details, read OvidLife’s “3 Estate Planning Blogs You Need to Follow,” article here.
