The "Tyranny of How"
Have you heard of this term?

The "tyranny of how."

I just stumbled upon it a few weeks ago and it rang true with me. So many of us, myself included, get caught up with the "how." It becomes so much about it that we then forego the why and the urgency of what we need to get done. Instead, we contemplate "how" it will work. We are not sure "how," so we get STUCK.

In estate planning, I see this all of the time. Many of my new clients are so caught up with whether they will need a Will or a Trust, that they get frozen in moving forward.

Really, it is not about a Will or a Trust--it is about the complete estate plan that we will put together for you based on your goals, needs, assets, family and your situation.

Leave the details to me as my ultimate goals are to avoid probate and protect your family. I want you to leave a beautiful legacy that is not just about an inheritance but it is about making decisions on behalf of your family so they won't need to. It is about not leaving your family with a mess to clean. It is about protection for your kids.

Let's not get stuck on "how" it will get done. Just trust that it will get done and you will feel better.
The "Learn With Lori" Series
In our next video installment, I decided to get to the basics. I get calls every week about property. When I ask who owns the house, it is crickets.

Most people do not know how they own their property. They also do not know how to pull deeds.

So, let's pull the deed now. It is easy to do in Florida.

Watch this video, pull your deed, download it and save it.

Watch closely--if you own property is it owned? Do you see the words "joint tenants with rights of survivorship" or do you see "husband and wife." If so, do you know what those ownerships means?

Questions? Email your deed to me and I will explain it.

Read this blog to get definitions of the different types of property and look at our video below.
Our mission is to give outstanding service to our clients through honesty, integrity, and creativity. 

Some pics from our recent signings. Happy faces!
Look what our clients are saying!
Randy Ziss
Professional, flexible and accommodating even under challenging circumstances. With Lori’s team, we were able to complete a very extensive Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney, Certificate and Trust with detailed advanced directives for a family member with advanced Lou Gehrig’s disease and unable to travel or even sign her name without extreme difficulty.

If I ever have to do this again-I would call on Lori Vella.
Eduardo Buller
Working with Lori Vella was great, she helped me record some deeds in FL. She was efficient and always responded any questions I had. I would totally recommend
Elaine Fowler
Quick to respond, and helpful too. Accommodating in difficult situations. Professional and respectful attorney and staff.

Assisted by helping us work through and understanding challenging issues, and situations we were to face, and have since we met.
