At a young age, Evan attended many funerals. He had a large family, with many relatives who were born in the earlier part of the 1900s. It became clear to him, even as a child, that death was very much a part of life.
Evan also noticed that for some family members, strife ensued after their passing, at times causing irreparable harm between family members. And yet in other instances, there were no significant family-related problems after a loved one died, only reflection and reverence.
In the former scenarios, there were difficulties between family members on even the most basic issues like transferring a car or clothing. And for the later—for those family members who had put in place proper estate planning documents—things were handled smoothly. And in the case of the family members who had trusts, their post-death matters were handled privately.
The differences between the family members who had put in place effective estate planning documents and those who did not was obvious.
In law school, estate planning called to Evan. He gained knowledge, building on those childhood experiences. He learned how we can make sure our intentions are carried out long after we pass away. A person can control specific actions and reactions, even after they are gone. We can also control how we want things handled when we are alive, even when we are unable to communicate or express our intent in any way.
While attending law school, Evan clerked for a prominent South Florida firm. And he immediately enjoyed helping clients draft estate planning documents. As a young attorney, in 1997, he continued helping clients in this area and has helped many different types of clients since. Rich and poor. Young and old. Holocaust survivors and their families. People with special needs children. Real estate investors. Entrepreneurs. White and blue collar workers. And much more.
