LATHAM — Christina Watson Meier, Esq., owner of Meier Law Firm, PLLC, has been in practice for 11 years. Her firm focuses primarily on elder law, estate planning and real estate. By limiting her practice to these areas, Christina and her team have gained the knowledge and experience to ably assist clients in planning for incapacity, long term care, and estate distribution as well as meeting client’s real estate needs.
As Christina stated, “we definitely don’t subscribe to the one-size-fits-all solution to estate planning.” Christina and her team work closely with her clients to understand their particular situation, needs and goals, she counsels them on the options available, and tailors a plan or advises on a course of action which will achieve the desired result. “We also consider what impact the planned course of action will have on the client and their family in the future. What seems like a great idea now may have very bad consequences in years to come,” said Christina.
At a minimum, a good estate plan includes a Last Will and Testament, a Power of Attorney and a Health Care Proxy. Also, your wishes concerning life-sustaining measures should be made known.
Too often Christina has seen the devastating effects a poor estate plan, or no estate plan, can have on an individual and his or her family. “It’s such a shame to see because so often it could have been avoided with proper planning.” That’s why Christina and her team make it their number one priority to provide their clients with an individualized plan.
