Coronavirus and Estate Planning for Emergencies

By Anna Melissa Price of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 03/18/2020

Estate planning usually brings to mind the drafting of a will and maybe the creation of a trust. But estate planning is more than just planning for the distribution of wealth at your death. A comprehensive estate plan includes life planning—making preparations to provide for yourself and your loved ones if life throws you a curve. With the global spread of the coronavirus, many are thinking about estate planning for emergencies—making sure you and your loved ones are provided for in times of economic downturn, poor health, or other adverse events.

WV SB 275 Update and More: Is an Intermediate Appellate Court on the Horizon?

By Steven K Wellman of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 03/09/2020

West Virginia is one of the few states without an intermediate court of appeals that sits between civil and criminal trial courts and the State Supreme Court. In the Mountain State, the Supreme Court hears appeals from all sources, including workers’ compensation matters. Unlike civil and criminal matters, there is an intermediate court, the Workers’ Compensation Board of Review, but West Virginia Senate Bill 275 (WV SB 275) proposed to create a new court of appeals, which would have had appellate jurisdiction over most matters, including Workers’ Compensation, and it came close to realization. Although the House of Delegates ultimately voted the bill down, the proposals in the bill can inform on future efforts along this vein.
