Denver Grant, of Lasher Holzapfel Sperry & Ebberson PLLC, has made available for download his article, “Estate Planning in the 21st Century”, published in JDSUPRA. The abstract is as follows:
On January 1, 2022, the Washington Uniform Electronic Wills Act (“Act”) took effect and in so doing brought estate planning documents into the 21st century. The Act modifies existing requirements in order to enable people to execute a valid Electronic Will. The changes allow clients, witnesses, and attorneys to overcome challenges such as lack of mobility, illness, remoteness, or a pandemic, which previously may have created a roadblock to modifying an existing or creating a new Will.
