Dear Clients, Friends, Family and Fans of the 14-1 Carolina Panthers:

Despite the Panthers loss yesterday, the team will gain valuable lessons from the game that will make for a great playoff run!  Likewise, the Power List for 2016 is a short compilation of lessons learned from client interactions that will make for a successful new year that I call  "7 Keys for Success from The Monday Morning Lawyer"!

Checklist concept - checklist, paper and pen

  1. Form your LLC while you still have a job. (You decide when its time to leave your good corporate job);
  2. Put together an estate plan...immediately! (my parents' generation deserve a standing ovation for understanding the importance of this!);
  3. Create a will and store the original document in a safe, fireproof/waterproof location like The Montgomery Law Firm (Call us today to store your original will);
  4. Don't be afraid to hire an attorney...we can spare your heartache (Our new product, ULX allows us to "meet clients where they are" with our flat rate billing);
  5. "Do you" - Attend a Tedx Talk or read a new book (ideas are the currency of the 21st century);
  6. Purchase life insurance (stop relying on to take care of your family at the death of a loved one); and
  7. Purchase our book, "Monday Morning Lawyer" so that you can understand your rights as an employee. (release early 2016).

Q & A with Eric A. Montgomery, Esq.

Q:  My father had his will prepared 10 years ago and now that he has passed away, we cannot find the original will.  Will the court allow a copy to be probated?

A: As a general rule, only the original will can be probated in court.  A probate court presumes that a will has been revoked if the original cannot be produced.  In limited circumstances a copy might be accepted but it is not a guarantee.
