Coming Together and Easter Hope

Dear Jonathan johnson,

Hopefully you are coming off a great spring break! We stayed in town for ours, but Josh and I did get to enjoy the UCP-OC gala last Saturday night benefiting many of our favorite littles who are working hard to reach new milestones in their journey. It was really special being surrounded by so many people in the community who want to help others however they can.

With Easter coming this Sunday and the tragedy at Notre Dame Cathedral, I’m reminded that no matter the darkness and ashes we face from time to time, there is always hope and light. I shared the video above because it's pretty incredible to me that onlookers at the Cathedral sang together Ave Maria and other hymns as it burned. And it's also pretty incredible to me that the Cross inside remained shining bright when everything else around it was ash.

I wish you all a very happy Easter and Passover. These special occasions are the perfect reason to have hope when things seem bleak, and to re-dedicate ourselves to what matters most.

And I’m not going to lie, I’m also looking forward to the chocolate.

Happy Easter,

Laura

10 Ideas for Candy Free Easter Baskets, and Amazing Local Chocolate For Your Easter Basket Of Course!

I know this is extremely contradictory, but I am posting about 10 ideas for Easter baskets that don't involve chocolate AND amazing local chocolate by Valenza Chocolatier for your Easter baskets! This is probably why Josh feels like he can never win with me! I'm all over the place.

If you would love to have beautiful and gourmet local chocolate for your kids Easter Baskets (My mom and Nana will love this classy gift), stop by Valenza Chocolatier's Easter Chocolate "pop up shop" today in Costa Mesa. Josh and I will be going by for sure. I had this local chocolate before at an event and it was really fantastic, plus I love supporting local entrepreneurs! I was super excited to know that I can have some beautiful and unique Easter chocolate for gifts that you can't get anywhere else.

Estate Planning Musts for Your Favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ Character

By Laura Meier, Esq.

You can imagine what it is like for me as an estate planning attorney watching ‘Game of Thrones’. I can’t help but think of all the ways that things would really play out if the law wasn’t limited to killing someone, and then passing their titles and property to their male next of kin.

With everyone at risk in Season 8 of sudden death and total destruction, here’s what type of estate planning your favorite character would want and need fast!

Cersei Lannister
 

Cersei Lannister- Cersei is a prime candidate for having a Lifetime Asset Protection Trust because she is obsessed with keeping the family money and power in the Lannister family line.

The Lifetime Asset Protection Trust would ensure that upon her death, the family fortune would be fully protected from any outsiders who marry in, creditors (think the Iron Bank), predators (too many to name) and divorce (if she does end up marrying Euron Greyjon).

image
 

Jon Snow- What Jon Snow needs more than the Iron Throne and to stop accidentally hooking up with his Aunt, is a really robust and unique living will. A living will is a legal document that states your end of life wishes if you are in a vegetative state and won’t recover. Most people declare in their living will that they would want to be removed from artificial life support in that case. But for Jon Snow, his living will should probably state that if he finds himself dead or near dead again, he wants all the medical intervention he can get until the Red Witch arrives.

image
 

Daenerys Targaryen- Everyone knows what our Mother of Dragon needs for her estate plan…a pet trust! Those Dragons needs to be fed with a slew of goats and sheep and whoever gets in Daenerys’ way. A good pet trust would allow her to leave money behind specifically earmarked to support her dragons’ care. In real life, we do this for our beloved horses and dogs typically, or because we are mad at our relatives.

Yelp Review Highlight: "I had a fantastic experience with Meier Law Firm. The flexibility with our schedule, the patience with our family and the process were perfect. The firm helped us stay on task with follow ups, but just enough not to be annoying or overwhelming. Bonnie is on top of it and always felt like she had our best interest and plan in mind. The communication was great, they checked in with us just at the right times when we needed that reminder. There is just no reason not to do work with this firm and do your estate plan!"- Tom W.
