Free July 10 Seminar to Address Pre- Planning, End-of-Life Issues

July 5, 2013

Brookfield, Wis. – A free July 10 seminar will address the often difficult matters of pre-planning for health and end-of-life needs, and important legal documents that should be in place to manage the related, often challenging issues.

Attorney John H. Pellmann, a partner in Pellmann, Drellos & Associates, will be a presenter at “See Me Now or See Me Later,” scheduled from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Vino Cappucino, 2848 N. Brookfield Road, Brookfield. Annalee Kruger, owner of Care Right, will also speak.

The seminar will detail critical steps in pre-planning, which can help families avoid having to make complicated, stressful decisions in a time of crisis. Topics will include how to discuss pre-planning with family members, and the process and documentation of estate planning.

“Most families avoid talking about pre-planning because it’s a difficult conversation,” said Pellmann, a veteran estate planning lawyer. “No one likes to talk about dying or becoming incapacitated. Yet the time to do so is before it happens, when decisions can be made in a knowledgeable, rational manner.”

Overcoming discomfort about the topic remains a stumbling block for many. Kruger will explain how to approach the delicate conversation about pre-planning.

Estate planning is vitally important to ensure that a person’s wishes are carried out, Pellmann said. Three basic estate planning documents are a “must do” for families: A financial power of attorney (also called durable power of attorney), health care power of attorney, and a will.

“A stroke, heart attack or other incapacitating ailment can strike suddenly,” Pellmann said. “Without proper planning, families can lose the power to make decisions about the person’s care and quality of life. Their options become limited, at a time when they’re already struggling with unforeseen questions and emotions. Pre-planning can make a very difficult time easier.”

Interested seminar attendees can register by calling (262) 422-3443 or e-mailing annaleekruger@carerightinc.com.

Pellmann, Drellos & Associates offers personalized legal counsel in business law, real estate, estate planning and probate, general civil litigation, and arbitration and mediation. John Pellmann, a Brookfield resident, is an experienced speaker on elder law and estate planning. He holds three degrees from Marquette University, including his J.D. in 1995 from Marquette University School of Law. He begins a position as a lecturer at Marquette University in the fall.
