During COVID-19, some Maine lawyers are writing more wills – Mainebiz
Elizabeth Hunt was quoted in today’s Mainebiz article “During COVID-19, some Maine lawyers are writing more wills.”
” ‘I do think folks have been thinking about their health and mortality a bit more and are moving their estate planning up on their priority list,’ said Murray, Murray & Plumb partner Elizabeth Hunt, who chairs the Portland firm’s estate planning, probate and trust administration practice group.
She said her firm has seen an uptick in estate planning inquiries, though not to the extent of being overwhelming.
She’s also letting clients know about the option to get wills and other legal documents notarized remotely, under an order signed by Gov. Janet Mills on April 8, though she has not yet made use of it herself.”
