The Tamara L. Davis, P. A. Law Firm Joins WealthCounsel Colleagues in Promoting National Estate planning awareness week, october 17-23, 2011
Dodge City, KS, Oct. 14, 2011 – Tamara L. Davis, Esq. of Tamara L. Davis, P. A. announced today that she is joining her colleagues at WealthCounsel in a public relations campaign to showcase National Estate Planning Awareness Week, October 17-23, 2011.
According to a 2010 industry trends survey of estate planners conducted by WealthCounsel, nearly 70% of the respondents indicated that Americans fail to plan because they lack awareness as to why they should. Davis is passionate about building awareness of the importance of thoughtful planning and is committed to educating the public about the negative consequences of what can happen to one’s loved ones when the proper documents are not in place.
Davis noted that estate planning is one of the most overlooked areas of personal financial management. More than 120 million Americans do not have proper estate plans to protect themselves or their families in the event of sickness, accidents, or untimely death. This costs many families wasted dollars and unnecessary hardship that can be minimized with proper planning.
In 2008, the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils (NAEPC) worked with Congress to pass a resolution proclaiming the third week in October as National Estate Planning Awareness Week. The resolution noted that “Many Americans are unaware that lack of estate planning and financial illiteracy may cause their assets to be disposed of to unintended parties by default through the complex process of probate.”
Davis has been practicing law since 1990 and prior to opening her own firm in 2003, was associated with Foulston Siefkin, LLP. She focuses her practice in the areas of Estate Planning, Family Business/Small Business Succession Planning, Trust Administration, Probate, Elder Law and related matters.
