The 2014 Sochi Olympics are in full spectacular, suspenseful, stirring swing. We enjoy watching the events play out, but we also love tuning into the segments about each Olympian, discovering their path to the biggest games in the world and learning their inspirations and motivations. They have amazing stories to tell just about how they got to where they are today. And then imagine the stories they will have to tell about this experience for the rest of their lives!

These first few days of competition really got us thinking and talking here at the office about an aspect of our work as estate planning attorneys not often discussed: our ability to help preserve a story, to preserve wisdom in addition to financial wealth. It’s just one of many reasons we love what we do.

Maybe you aren’t in Russia this winter, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have an Olympic-sized story to share and pass on. As you consider or begin the estate planning process, we hope you’ll talk with us about the legacy you’d like to leave. We have special tools to help you record your stories!
