Estate & Asset Protection Attorney, Victoria Collier encourages readers to take stock of their digital assets and to include them in any will or asset protection plan they may currently have in place.
DECATUR, GA, July 12, 2019: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on her law firm’s website entitled “It’s Easy To Overlook Digital Assets When Creating A Will,” in which Ms. Collier elaborates on the many forms that digital assets include.
As Collier points out, “We are living in the digital age and we are collecting massive numbers of digital items.” She elaborates, “We buy books, music and movies that are stored forever on the cloud and which are accessible only through accounts on our digital devices. Unlike our home libraries of old, shelves filled with record albums, books and video tapes, today our digital devices hold all of these things.” “And how about photo collections?” Collier asks, adding, “Family photos used to be kept in boxes or photo albums. Today, they are stored in the cloud, yet are as valuable to families as they’ve ever been.” According to Collier, “Because they are not actually physically present, it’s very easy to forget about the value of these collections when creating a will.”
“As an Estate and Asset Protection law firm,” writes Collier, “we have had to change our thinking about what constitutes an asset today. We have had to learn to guide our clients to think about what assets they may have that are digital. Items they may not consider to be valuable actually could be worth many thousands of dollars and would be meaningful to their heirs.”
