Dotting the i's and Crossing the t's

Thursday, April 8, 2021

This series of free presentations will provide in-depth understanding of the most important planning documents that everyone – regardless of age – needs to have. April 8 - Durable Powers of Attorney. April 15 - Health Care Directives and Living Wills. April 22 - Wills and Probate. April 29 - Trusts and Trust Administration. This informational series will be presented by Bryana Cross Bean, a local attorney with memberships in the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, the Washington State Bar Association and Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association.

Series Focuses on Documents for All Ages

For better or worse, we live in a society that relies on documentation.  It seems that if it isn’t on paper, it doesn’t exist.  When an emergency, crisis or unforeseen circumstances arise, regardless of age, it’s often too late to do much.  

“Dotting the i’s and Crossing the t’s: Providing Legal Peace of Mind” is a four-part series designed to provide a more in-depth examination of the key documentation that everyone needs to have in place.  Consideration will be given to the “why” and “how” of each element: why they are so critical in our society and what should be included as key components.

“We all have busy lives,” said Aaron Van Valkenburg, Manager of Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources.  “It’s very easy to skip over issues that we feel may never happen.  Today, especially during the course of a global pandemic, each person needs to give serious thought to our wishes for ourselves, our families, our property and our legacy.  That concern spans the entire age spectrum from young adulthood through advanced years.  It’s truly more about caring for others than for ourselves.”

The workshop series is a free, information-only opportunity.  Each document will be discussed in-depth and time will be allotted for audience questions.
