Curbside Attorney: Create Your Will From The Comfort Of Your Car


AUSTIN, TX – As non-essential businesses remain closed, business owners are getting creative to continue serving their customers.

According to KXAN, a south Austin attorney started a Curbside Attorney service to help people execute their will from their cars. Joel Pace is dedicated to helping people plan for the future during uncertain times.

“There’s a precipitating cause for why you start taking care of some of these things,” said Pace. “Whether it’s birth of a child, you get married, someone dies or there’s a pandemic.”

To assist his customers efficiently, Pace prepares the client’s paperwork in advance and then has the client and witnesses pull up outside of his home. Pace meets his customers wearing gloves, a mask, a face shield, and a smock and provides the documents through the car window.

“We’ve tried to make the process friendly, approachable, not time-consuming, and safe,” he said.

The whole process takes about 15 minutes and allows customers to take care of business that cannot be completed virtually. Executing a will requires a notary and in-person witness at the signing. Even though Gov. Abbott is allowing notaries to use video-conferencing options for estate planning during the pandemic, but that doesn’t apply to witnesses.

Biggest pile of Bull squatchy I've ever heard of! :-P
