Since the Coronavirus pandemic began spreading in the United States, estate planning attorney Linda Cammuso has seen a noticeable increase in clients seeking out her services for themselves and their businesses.
How was the firm doing prior to the pandemic?
Our firm specializes in estate planning and related areas: wills, trusts, powers of attorney, elder law, Medicare applications, business succession planning.
Prior to the pandemic, we have been in a growth mode for our entire existence. Since 2009, we’ve doubled our staffing and probably doubled our gross revenue. We’ve acquired two law firms and developed the satellite office arrangement to have more geographic reach.
How has business changed in the last few months?
We’ve seen surges since the end of February and beginning of March, in a couple of ways. It appears everyone’s eyes have been opened about the importance of being prepared in life.One of the most notable things we’ve seen is the number of frontline workers who reached out to establish routine estate planning documents. They want something in place just in case they get ill. They see the struggles of patients who don’t have that paperwork in place, and they want to make sure it doesn’t happen to them.
