Scholarship Essay Contest
Our Raleigh estate and elder law attorneys are committed to honoring the life, work and charity of every individual.
The attorneys at Brady Cobin Law Group recognize the importance of sound planning at every stage of life— when planning for college, when raising a family, when caring for aging parents and when looking toward retirement. We are pleased to sponsor a scholarship essay contest to help students with college education expenses and to focus attention on issues involved in preparing for the unexpected. Everyone discovers that life is full of surprises. Anyone can be injured in an accident at any age.
If you are thinking about college, you’re already thinking about the future. Planning ahead is important for people of all ages to be prepared for unforeseen circumstances.
A conversation between parents and their adult children and those approaching adulthood can help clarify issues related to financial responsibility and who should make financial decisions on behalf of a family member who becomes incapacitated. Most young people have not accumulated significant financial assets. But it’s still a good idea to have a simple will and a durable health care power of attorney. It is important to start such conversations when everyone is healthy and then revisit the issues as your circumstances change.
Our goal as wills and estate planning attorneys at Brady Cobin Law Group is to understand our clients’ needs and provide guidance to make well-informed decisions about the future. Our attorneys recognize the importance of getting a good education to pursuing a fulfilling career and achieving future goals. We’re glad to be in a position to help some deserving students pursue their dreams with our scholarship essay contest.
