InterActive Legal and Cariloop Announce Partnership

Companies Join Forces to Improve Strategic Planning For Elder Care

Cariloop

Dallas, TX
April 16, 2015

Cariloop announced today its strategic partnership with InterActive Legal, the premier Knowledge Company for lawyers specializing in Elder Law, Estate, and Special Needs Planning.

This partnership enables Cariloop to seamlessly provide its case management tools and concierge coaching services to the thousands of specialist lawyers already relying upon InterActive Legal as they guide clients and families through the maze of elder care, one of the most intricate parts of the elder planning process.

"Care for one's parents, or one's spouse, involves almost every challenge – medical, financial, legal, and emotional. One of our goals at InterActive Legal is to provide the very best resources to the thousands of lawyers who rely upon us to help them satisfy their clients' needs," stated Michael Graham, CEO of InterActive Legal. "The Cariloop partnership enables us to do just that. Cariloop's unique tools and services, including particularly the on demand concierge service, is of great value in helping clients plan for and manage care during difficult life transitions."

"As a nation, we place some of the most complex requirements upon those least likely to understand. More than half of those living long enough to need care also need support through programs like Medicaid. Lack of understanding, and failure to consult experts in advance, often means that more of the family funds are spent than needed to be. These are the areas where the attorney experts usually save the family far, far more than they cost. We educate, provide the document drafting tools, and the community that such lawyers need," Graham, continued. "Families need an integrated approach."

As elder care considerations become more and more common amongst our baby boomer population, Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorneys are playing a bigger role in how families plan for the future. Cariloop's new portal, scheduled to be released to the public in May 2015, will enable people to privately work together as a unit and access licensed or certified professionals that can guide them as they make decisions together.

It was the very idea of customized planning and simplicity of use for families that attracted Graham to the mission of Cariloop.

"It is their combination of talent, vision of the future, and ability to humanize technology. Cariloop represents a great blend of product and service. An experience like none other for me personally when I used it for my 96-year-old father transitioning from independent living this year to either assisted living or long-term care from a fractured pelvis. InterActive Legal wants that same experience for our all of our attorneys and their clients," said Graham.

With the ability to potentially work with thousands of legal professionals across the country, the partnership serves as a major building block for Cariloop in their growth strategy.

"We couldn't be more excited to work with the InterActive Legal team and their membership base," said Michael Walsh, CEO of Cariloop. "Too many families and caregivers are going through this stressful process alone and without a plan in place. By now equipping InterActive Legal members with Cariloop tools and coaches, these Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorneys can provide a truly amazing experience for their clients in this situation."

California Proposition 19 – What Estate Planners Need to Know

As estate planners consider potential tax law changes that might occur at the federal level this year, one state is also dealing with a new property tax issue that could impact many clients owning real property in California. California Prop. 13, which was enacted in 1978, created a situation in which the assessed value of California real property for property tax purposes is often far less than the market value of such property, making it not unusual for a property to have an assessed value that is less than 20% of the fair market value. If the property tax value is reassessed (which would occur if the property is sold, or in some cases upon death of the owner), the property taxes owed can increase significantly.

Clients have a very small window of time to consider whether to take steps – and to actually take them – to preserve the potential property tax savings conferred by Prop. 13. Tune into this webinar for the latest.

GA Runoff Elections Concluded: Anticipated Tax Changes Affecting Estate Planning for This and Future Years

The tax world is likely to change (yet again!) and if so, that will have far reaching economic effects. You and your clients need be prepared... not later this year, not later this month, but NOW. Although we cannot know what will be proposed by the Biden Administration, we have plenty to consider. And it is likely that Biden administration tax proposals can be enacted under a Budget Reconciliation Act, which cannot be filibustered. This webinar will discuss what the most likely and most consequential tax proposals are likely to be, and how you can help your clients prepare for them now.

Post-Election Estate Planning What to Do For Clients In November and December of 2020

Speakers: Jonathan G. Blattmachr, Esq., Robert Keebler, CPA, and Martin M. Shenkman, Esq.

The 2020 election demonstrated that the projected Democratic sweep did not occur. Former Vice President Biden won the Presidency, but that is still being challenged. The Republicans have control of the Senate it appears, but two runoff elections in Georgia in January 2021 may provide the Democrats a chance to pick up two additional seats making the Senate evenly split between Democrats and Republicans. What does this all mean to clients that were engaged in planning in anticipation of the Blue Wave that did not happen?
