The Value of LegalVault Online Storage

Our firm has recently seen a surge in the enrollment and use of LegalVault, the online document storage and information service.

People always ask us, where should I store my documents? What happens if I lose my will, or lose my power of attorney? What happens if my executor or power of attorney cannot find my estate planning documents? One of the biggest concerns is making sure a hospital and doctors have a copy of your living will and health care power of attorney if needed.

LegalVault solves many of those problems. LegalVault offers a secure web site to store your estate planning documents and any other vital information. Only you and your attorney can access all of your documents, and only your health care provider/hospital can access your medical power of attorney and living will.

One of the biggest advantages of using LegalVault is that you’re given a laminated emergency ID card to carry with you. This card provides hospitals and doctors direct access to your medical power of attorney and living will only. This solves a significant problem of you or your loved ones not having the physical documents available when admitted to a hospital, which is when the hospital usually asks to see such documents.
