…will your practice go to Hell? That’s the question that my friend Courtney Kennaday with the South Carolina Bar asks in a recent post complete with pictures of what can happen when a solo practitioner dies without a plan in place to handle unexpected death or disability. The post links to an article which she and Reid Trautz wrote on how to prepare for life’s unexpected eventualities, and it’s definately worth a look.
Not only do you not want to burden your loved-ones with the obligation of winding down and closing your law practice while dealing with their grief over losing you, but it’s your ethical obligation to your clients to protect them from injury should you suddenly be unable to move forward with their legal matters.
