Hi, I am Jill Singer, a resident of Wellington, Florida, and I started Legal Planning For Life, PLLC, to bring awareness to my community about the importance of estate planning. I obtained my Juris Doctorate from Brooklyn Law School in 2001 and practiced Workers’ Compensation Law in New York before relocating to Florida in 2010. I grew up seeing first-hand the devastation and misery that comes when relatives pass away with no planning in place. I watched my mother have to battle in court when my great aunt and uncle passed away with no planning in place; only to have to spend valuable time and resources to ensure what should and would have happened if a simple will had been in place- the assets would have stayed within our family.
Also, I aim to prevent the problems associated with assets not properly titled. My mother put in place a family Trust years ago, and just recently realized that a condo that she purchased in 2001 was never re-titled into her Trust. If she had passed away today, her estate would have had to go through the time and expense of probate because the condo was not in her Trust.
My father recently passed away from brain cancer. During his last few years struggling with his condition and his pending demise, I wanted my time with him to be about him enjoying the short time he had left. As much as I wanted to ask him about his wishes for myself and my family and for any “final words and thoughts”, I hated to have to bring this up and as a result I did not. I have deep regrets because of it. This is why I have a built in a “legacy” session within my planning to give clients the opportunity to record words of wisdom and leave behind more than just their money, which they otherwise may not do.
I strive to make a difference and to ensure that people have proper planning in place to protect their loved ones; and systems in place to prevent traditional pitfalls that prevent plans from working the way that they were intended.
Thank You for Renewing
My Roots Run Deep in Palm Beach County!
Raised in Central Palm Beach County, I grew as the County grew. In the 1970’s, I attended new elementary schools as they were built to accommodate population growth. My school bus often had to stop for cows crossing Congress Avenue! I have seen communities rise from where orange groves and farms once stood. Jupiter, Wellington and the Western communities were farms, forests, or citrus groves not so very long ago.
After receiving my B.A. degree in Communications/Marketing from Virginia Tech University in 1985, I began my career in Washington, D.C. as the Associate Director of Communications for the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS). I returned to Palm Beach County four years later to open a public relations/special events company.
In 2004, following a brief family hiatus, I returned to the work force as a licensed Realtor. Today, I specialize in all areas of real estate: from re-sales, short sales and bank owned properties to senior communities, new construction and rentals. Outside from work, my chief interests are reading, walking, yoga, studying Feng Shui, and spending time with my family in the City of Lake Worth Beach.
To me, Palm Beach County is the best combination of old memories and new possibilities. Whether along the coast or further inland, the construction of new communities, as well as the renaissance of older neighborhoods, are evidence of the varied lifestyles available here. Let me show you the Palm Beach County that I know.
