Scholarly Lectures/Writings:

  • It is essential that as your parents age, you have conversations with them about their finances. To broach the topic, you might bring up current events like the coronavirus pandemic, its’ effect on economic conditions, and how it relates to the security of their financial future. The conversation should come from a calming place of love and concern. Speak to them respectfully about how the coronavirus pandemic has you thinking about the importance of their planning and preparedness., Blog, How to Talk to Your Aging Parents About Estate Planning, Law Offices of Vlad Portnoy, P.C., Finance, High Net Worth, Medicaid, 2020
  • There has been an explosion in the numbers of Americans rushing to make their will online. Understandably, the coronavirus pandemic has created the scramble to set up wills and end-of-life directives. However, online do it yourself (DIY) wills are often deemed invalid as they do not comply with all of the legal requirements of the state where they were executed. According to Caring.com, the prevalence of will and estate planning has been on the decline since 2017 but this trend is quickly reversing itself with the advent of the coronavirus pandemic., Blog, Americans Focus on Wills and Estate Planning During the Pandemic, Law Offices of Vlad Portnoy, P.C., Finance, High Net Worth, Medicaid, 2020
