FAQs: Mullen & Guttman, PLLC

If you previously worked with Mullen & Guttman, PLLC and have questions about your estate plan, it may be helpful to review the frequently asked questions below:

Where are my estate planning documents now that Mullen & Guttman, PLLC has closed?

The original documents that you possess are the official version of your estate plan and it remains in force regardless of the status of the firm that prepared the plan. If you worked with attorney Matt Guttman or Jamie Reff-Wagner to create your estate plan, Guttman Law, PLLC maintains your old file and has a digital copy available. If you need copies of your plan or have questions related to the plan, it’s a good idea to begin by reaching out to the attorney who drafted your estate plan. If you no longer have the contact information for your previous estate planning attorney, please contact Guttman Law and we will assist you.

Who will represent me now?

The choice is yours! It can be helpful to begin by contacting the attorney who drafted your existing estate plan. However, you are also welcome to contact the Guttman Law team for a complimentary estate planning review or consultation to see if our services are a good fit for your needs and goals. Attorneys Matt Guttman and Jamie Reff-Wagner are happy to address your questions and help you assess your estate plan.

When should I contact Guttman Law or another estate planning attorney?

As a general rule, attorneys Matt Guttman and Jamie Reff-Wagner, recommend scheduling periodic estate plan reviews every three years to refresh your memory and ensure that no life changes have taken place that should be reflected in your estate plan.
