Ty Supancic, Esq. Announces Membership in WealthCounsel®

Woodland Hills, CA – August 30, 2011 – Ty Supancic, Esq. today announced that The Law Collaborative, LLC, which recently re-located to Warner Center, has become a member of WealthCounsel®, a nationwide organization of more than 2,200 estate planning attorneys. Members of WealthCounsel® believe in a comprehensive, client-centered approach to estate planning founded on the principles of professional collaboration and a commitment to excellence.

“Estate planning is an ongoing process and not merely a single legal transaction,” said Supancic. “As a member of WealthCounsel®, my firm will have access to a state-of-the-art document drafting system, a network of experienced colleagues throughout the country with whom I can collaborate, and educational resources to keep me on the cutting edge of knowledge.” Supancic stated.

Supancic noted that the majority of Americans do not have a simple will, let alone an estate plan. He stated that he has witnessed many situations where the lack of an estate plan has created unnecessary familial chaos for the client’s beneficiaries so he is particularly passionate about building awareness of the importance of thoughtful planning which includes planning for the care of children and the disposition of new technology assets previously ignored by traditional attorneys.

In addition to WealthCounsel®, Supancic is also a member of the California and Beverly Hills Bar Associations, and is admitted to practice law before the Central District Court.

May Newsletter: Retiring?

Who Wants to Retire?

What we have learned over time about retirement is that people in their twenties don’t plan because they think they’ll never die. People in their thirties don’t plan because they are too busy building careers and keeping up with the Joneses. People don’t plan during their forties because they’re too busy paying off their kids’ college tuition. Most don’t start planning until their fifties, sixties, and seventies and sometimes that’s too late. It’s not too late for you. When are you going to plan? Is your plan current? Know that laws change every year and plans need to be reviewed and updated to reflect these changes.

We are pleased to announce that we’ve joined Wealth Counsel, the premier Estate Planning organization for Estate Planning Attorneys. We offer Estate Planning services to clients who are considering reviewing, renewing, or initiating their estate plan. We can draft your simple or complex will, a living trust, or a more complex and elaborate wealth transfer plan. Call us today. We are here to serve you.

Let’s Bring Back That Loving Feeling

Dr. Mark Goulston wrote an article titled, Human Cooling, Global Warming, & Childhood Obesity, that reflects his observations of our society today. How we’ve replaced listening with lecturing, taking responsibility with excuse-making, contentment with immediate gratification, value with ROI, giving with taking. This is not true for all people, but, unfortunately, it is true for many. Why? Why have we replaced joyful laughter with laughing at others, and gratitude for our blessings with disappointment for what we lack? According to Dr. Goulston, we’ve done it because we’ve lost sight of life’s positives. We grasp at ‘stuff,’ to fill the gaping hole left behind.

The more we make excuses, blame others, react without listening, and indulge in resentments, the more likely we will consume, buy, take, and grab to fill the void. The more we listen, contemplate, give to others, and take responsibility for our actions and choices, the more complete and whole we begin to feel. Dr. Goulston recommends the following powerful exercise to anyone who wants to bring back more of those loving feelings.

1. Think of someone you are grateful to, why you are grateful to them, and the difference they have made in your life. Contact them (or a surviving family member if they have passed) and tell them. Thank them.

2. Think of someone to whom you need to apologize. Contact them and apologize. If it’s been a long time say, “This is a long overdue apology, but time slipped away and I felt too embarrassed to contact you. I’m contacting you now to tell you I ____________________. I was wrong and I am sorry.” If you use email, write in the subject line, “A long overdue apology,” which should get their attention.

This exercise will uplift you and give you a new attitude towards life. It will be easier to take care of your health and you will be able to model these positive, powerful behaviors for your children. To read Dr. Goulston’s article, click here.
