Air Force Veteran and North Georgia Native, Angela executed her first Will at the age of nineteen before being deployed to the Middle East. Relying solely on mostly vague instructions of, “Initial here, here, and here. Great. Now, sign here,” she recognized early in life that occasionally things just needed some in-depth explaining.
Fast forward to when Angela retired from the Air Force, by this point, she had signed several more Wills and even some Powers of Attorney and various other Estate Planning documents but was still just as clueless in their purpose as she was back at nineteen. Realizing an opportunity was afoot where her educational goals and desire to continue serving those around her would most definitely align, she went on to law school. A short while later, Ally Legal, P.A. was born.
Throughout Angela’s legal studies, she had many opportunities to learn, be mentored, and guided by some of the best Estate Planning and legal professionals in the industry. Their collective expertise and shared knowledge not only provided constant affirmation that many people, not just folks in the military, shy away when it comes to learning exactly what it means to plan one’s estate and legal affairs, but they also shared with her tips, techniques, and tactics that can go a long way in preserving a client’s legacy for their intended beneficiaries.
Legal Representation Is Not Just For The Wealthy
It is for anyone who desires sound legal counsel to assist them in speaking the unique language of the law. It is vital in assisting with the upkeep and protection of one’s wealth and, at times, protection. For the record, we all have wealth and it may not always start with a dollar sign. Additionally, one may seek to employ legal services to maintain their interests as private and controlled and shielded from most bad decisions. As a military retiree, Angela also has extensive knowledge about military benefits and how to address those when planning. Additionally, Angela has specific experience in dealing with blended families and, as such, also knows how to delicately approach that particular family model with specific attention to detail and consideration for some of the most complicated issues facing potential clients.
Ultimately, every legal relationship is a process and rarely ever an event only accomplished once in a lifetime. It is important to know the person helping you protect your legacy and interests for years to come understand where you are coming from and how to best guide you. Whether your needs are as simple as addressing uncertainty in selecting the right method of estate planning for young adults, the potentially more complicated issues due to divorce or remarriage and high-value assets, or the intricate complexities of being a military benefit recipient, Ally Legal can help!
Born into a large family of nine, I learned early on to fight for justice and any extra scraps of food. After all, I was just a little guy compared to my brothers and sisters and, boy, did they treat me like it! As my siblings and I grew and grew, our living arrangements became quite crowded, to say the least, and dear old mom (rest her soul) was no longer able to care for all of us. She taught us all she could about being proper and protective bullmastiffs in the short time we had with her. When the time was right and I was ready, I left my crowded Maryland home to stand guard with my new Masters, the Tormey Family. They brought me to a nice, big home with no other doggies, a gigantic yard to roll around in, and all the food and treats a dog could ever need.
My new family and I spent my younger years traveling the world to exotic lands like Illinois, Ohio, Virginia, and Georgia where I took great pride guarding my homes and backyards from people, other dogs, and strange insects. After a particularly “ruff” winter in Illinois where the snow was up to my whiskers, I realized I had grown weary of trudging through snow, moving from home to home, learning new smells and making new friends so we struck out on a new adventure: Our Fur-Ever Home in Florida!
Now I spend the majority of my days moving from one memory-foam bed to another. I have also developed a love of certain raw veggies (NOT celery, in case you wondered), fresh treats fetched from the market by my masters, and I give the occasional complimentary gruff to passing bikers, birds, and suspected bad people. I’ve been fortunate that I have not had to use my big-boy voice, but I stand ready, just in case.
I enjoy head scratches, short walks around the corner from my house (on a leash, of course), and drooling on anything and anyone if they smell like they have treats for me. My house humans say I should be wearing a bib but they know I’m not very fond of wearing clothes.
Bottom line, if you’re looking for a bad boy, you won’t find him here. I’m a good boy. Ask my boss.
