FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April 2, 2020

Urgentplanning.com offers new way to access critical legal services, quickly, during difficult times

To meet increased requests for rapid-response legal services, midtown Manhattan law firm Holm & O’Hara LLP has launched www.urgentplanning.com.  The site utilizes cutting-edge technology to connect prospective clients and their families with the firm’s dedicated team of estate planning and administration attorneys and paraprofessionals.

In announcing the new site’s launch, Holm & O’Hara LLP Co-Managing Partner, Michael L. Landsman, Esq., said, “Too often, legal services have been offered at the attorney’s convenience, in terms of both time and place.  In today’s incredibly uncertain environment, with restrictions on mobility and greater need for last-minute and crisis planning, this no longer works well.  We’ve conceived urgentplanning.com as a direct way for people to get in touch quickly with an attorney who can jump in to help fill in the missing pieces of their plans, rapidly replace out-of-date documents, and manage the various legal aspects of an evolving situation. It’s really about bringing caring, custom legal services at an affordable price into the 21st century and making them readily accessible to all.”

Through www.urgentplanning.com, prospective clients can request a complementary consultation with an experienced attorney.  Response times are unusually short for the legal profession – typically just a few hours – and the system is constantly monitored.  Available services include everything from basic estate planning – such as wills and advanced directives – through more complex estate planning utilizing trust structures, through estate administration and care and disposition of property.

Chaya R. Biskin-Sitko, head of the firm’s trusts and estates practice, added, “We are seeing an unprecedented increase in requests for our assistance.  The current crisis has put a sharp focus on the need for end of life planning, especially for those who may be on the front lines.  There has also been an uptick of people who are suddenly responsible for property – especially rental real estate – and are uncertain how to begin dealing with it.” 

According to Landsman, the idea for urgentplanning.com came out of the firm’s longstanding approach to the practice of law.  “So often, by the time people reach our firm, they are frightened by the circumstances they are in and frustrated because they have had trouble getting in touch with lawyers.  For over 30 years, we have built our practice on a small, dedicated and nimble team of attorneys and paraprofessionals.  It is not uncommon for us to make house – or hospital – calls.  Providing understandable information and offering the psychological comfort of knowing that there is someone to reach out to has been a cornerstone of our practice.  With www.urgentplanning.com, we are using the power of contemporary communications tools to deliver the same old-fashioned values, service and attention to detail that Holm & O’Hara LLP has built its reputation on.”
