Sharon Weikel opened The Weikel Law Firm, which specializes in estate planning, in the summer of 2014 and has since been focused on estate planning law. Sharon also offers the ability to upload health directives, medical powers of attorney and living wills. “Important documents are uploaded in a system and my client is issued an emergency wallet card, offering pertinent information about my client, as well as a contact name and number of who to call to have these important documents faxed, in the case of an emergency,” said Sharon. “If, for example, my client is hurt in an accident and taken to a hospital, this emergency wallet card will have their medical information and the hospital can make a call to have the health directives or medical powers of attorney faxed, if needed. As I am the one drafting these documents, I offer this additional service to my clients.”
In addition, Attorney Sharon Weikel sets herself apart by working with Standalone Retirement Trusts, something relatively new in the field of estate planning. These are separate trusts established for the primary benefit of being named as the beneficiary of a client’s retirement account, in the event the client passes away. “This type of trust is especially helpful in estate planning for blended families and where a beneficiary may have creditor problems,” said Sharon.
