In a recent unpublished decision, the New Jersey Appellate Division has again stressed the importance of complying with the beneficiary designation requirements contained in life insurance policies. See Fox v. Lincoln Financial Group, et al., A-3189-13T4 (2015).http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/court-warns-that-marriage-does-not-89475/

I had the privilege of attending a reception at the Executive Mansion in Richmond this week at which Governor McAuliffe recognized June 2015 as "lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender Pride Month in our Commonwealth of Virginia."  As aptly and succinctly stated in the Governor's formal recognition document "the Commonwealth and its economy are more prosperous when the civil rights of all people are equal."  
 
In keeping with this spirit I encourage you to celebrate and demonstrate your pride for the diversity of people in our Commonwealth by attending Hampton Roads Pride events later this month.  There's a business networking event with Hampton Roads Business OutReach at O'Connor Brewery in Norfolk, a block party, a performance by En Vogue, and the Grand Marshal is Thomas Roberts from MSNBC.  I will be joining the fun including the Boat Parade - a pretty big adventure for a girl who hails from landlocked Wyoming!

Happy Pride Month!

It is really satisfying to help clients get their affairs in order, and I’m so glad to have helped Jack and John ensure their philanthropic goals are realized through the Hampton Roads Community Foundation.

Have you ever been in a conversation and had someone say “you know what I mean” and you say “sure” only, it becomes clear later that you had no idea what they meant?  It should go without saying that precision is essential in legal drafting.  The importance of clarity cannot be overstated.  When you decide to do your own wordsmithing, untrained, it can have unintended consequences.Typewriter - DutchTake, for example, the word “heir.”  It’s a word frequently bandied about but the legal meaning is this: the person(s) entitled to a decedent’s property when there is no will.  What’s more, a decedent’s heirs might surprise you.

Don't forget Dining Out for Life next Thurs. 4/30. I want to invite folks and their friends to join me at Nawab in WMBG and encourage folks to dine at participating restaurants if they cannot make the trek to WMBG. The coolest thing about this eventt is that all proceeds stay here in Hampton Roads and ACCESS AIDS Care. http://promiselaw.com/diningoutforlifenawab/

The importance of precise language is underscored in the battle ensuing over Robin Williams’s estate.  In this case, the dispute is over “memorabilia” – what’s your take are movie posters memorabilia or are those simply personal effects?
