A Paralegal’s Perspective
A new acquaintance asked what I do for a living. When I told her I am a Paralegal at Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal, P.C., she mentioned her niece is an attorney. She said her niece is a “real bulldog who gets in people’s faces.”
I laughed, and said “that while some of our attorneys have been known to be ‘bulldog’ types, the work that I do is primarily in estate planning, tax, and corporate law.” There isn’t a lot of “getting in people’s faces,” but there is a lot of deliberate discussion. That’s not to say the attorneys I work with are not tenacious – they most certainly are, but, perhaps, in quieter ways. Whether they are helping clients make their wishes explicitly clear to family members, discussing tax planning to maintain wealth within a family, or reviewing complicated business agreements, the attorneys at Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal approach each situation with the client’s best interest in mind.
At a recent estate planning group meeting, there was an in-depth discussion about what provisions should be included in a trust document if both spouses die at the same time. After several minutes of debate, one of the attorneys quipped, “only a group of tax nerds would find this interesting!” Well, that’s true, until someone dies, and then the family finds it quite interesting indeed.
Although it may not be overly exciting or glamorous, our clients need a team on their side who think ahead and avoid the unpleasant situations of life and death. That is just the kind of dog you want protecting your family from danger: tenacious, thorough, and never tiring. From preparing a basic estate plan to detangling a complicated tax issue, from creating a start-up LLC to reorganizing a multilayered organization, the attorneys in the estate planning, tax, and corporate departments of Paule, Camazine, & Blumenthal, P.C., would be happy to help protect you and your family.
