Cholewka Law Joins WealthCounsel Colleagues in Promoting
National Estate Planning Awareness Week, October 17-23, 2011

Gilbert, AZ, Oct. 10, 2011 – Becky Cholewka, Esq. of Cholewka Law announced today that she is joining her colleagues at WealthCounsel in a public relations campaign to showcase National Estate Planning Awareness Week, October 17-23, 2011.

More than 120 million Americans do not have proper estate plans to protect themselves or their families in the event of sickness, accidents, or untimely death.  This costs many families wasted dollars and unnecessary hardship that can be minimized with proper planning. Cholewka, whose father passed away when she was 19, is passionate about estate planning and is keenly aware that it is one of the most neglected areas of personal financial management.

According to a 2010 industry trends survey of estate planners conducted by WealthCounsel, nearly 70% of the respondents indicated that Americans fail to plan because they lack awareness as to why they should.  Cholewka has made it her mission to educate Arizonans about the importance of preparing ahead of time and the painful consequences when you don’t.

In 2008, the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils (NAEPC) worked with Congress to pass a resolution proclaiming the third week in October as National Estate Planning Awareness Week.  The resolution noted that “Many Americans are unaware that lack of estate planning and financial illiteracy may cause their assets to be disposed of to unintended parties by default through the complex process of probate.”

“An estate plan continually evolves over time, it is not a single legal transaction,” said Cholewka.  “As a member of WealthCounselÒ, my firm has access to a state-of-the-art document drafting system; a network of experienced colleagues throughout the country with whom I collaborate with; and, superior educational resources to help me stay on the leading edge of knowledge,” Cholewka stated.
