WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 05, 2020
On Friday, May 22 at 11:00am, Westchester County elder law attorney Anthony J. Enea, member at Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP in White Plains and Somers, N.Y., will host a free webinar on Pandemics and Planning: Steps You Can Take Right Now to Protect Your Estate. The educational webinar, presented as part of Schneps Media’s “Straight Talk” series, will cover important estate planning essentials during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pandemics and Planning attendees will learn what can be done from home to protect their assets and ensure their health care wishes are followed – including which estate planning documents are most critical.
“Obtaining legal services while at home is possible thanks to an executive order by Governor Cuomo that temporarily allows remote witnessing and notarizing in New York State,” explained Anthony Enea, who has spent 35 years protecting the rights of seniors, the disabled and their families. “All estate planning documents can now be executed remotely via audio-video conferencing platforms.”
Registration for the webinar is free, but space is limited. Those interested in attending Pandemics and Planning can reserve a spot at http://www.bxtimes.com/estate.
“We can't know what the future holds, but we can plan for it,” said Enea. “With many recent changes in the law concerning Medicaid as well as the realities of the pandemic, now is an ideal time to get your legal matters organized so that you and your loved ones are protected. Our attorneys are working to ensure it remains a smooth, seamless process.”
