Estate Planning Pick-Up Lines

Pick up lines The Zucker Law Firm recently posted the twenty greatest estate planning pick-up lines on their website. The post is copied below, for your enjoyment:

Appropriate for use on eligible ladies, gentlemen, personal trustees, corporate trustees and other personal representatives. Use at your own risk – I promise nothing…

  1. Nice trust – mind if I review it?
  2. If I told you I had an executed will, would you hold it against me?
  3. If I had a dime for every time I saw a living trust as well-drafted as yours, I’d have ten cents.
  4. You had me at “revoke any and all prior wills and codicils”.
  5. There’s no latent or patent ambiguity about how attractive you are.
  6. Is that a document of independent legal significance or are you just happy to see me?
  7. My love for you will never be amended by codicil.
  8. Your beauty is like an irrevocable trust – it’s virtually unmodifiable!
  9. Hey baby, didn’t I see you on the cover of “Trusts & Estates” magazine?
  10. I don’t think you can be a witness, because you have undue influence over me.
  11. Great job, notary public! Now how about some notary private!
  12. If I could respell “fiduciary”, I would put U and I together.
  13. You have nominee powers over me – you can hold me in any form without disclosing the existence of any trust or fiduciary capacity.
  14. If you stood in front of a mirror and held up eleven Charitable Remainder Trusts, you would see a dozen of the prettiest/handsomest things in the world.
  15. If you marry me, we could use the unlimited marital deduction together!
  16. You meet and exceed my “ascertainable standards”!
  17. I’ll show you my Durable Power of Attorney if you show me yours.
  18. Did anyone ever tell you that you have the face of a Botticelli and the body of a Buy-Sell Agreement?
  19. Wanna learn some different ways to use a QTIP?
  20. Hey, I draft wills! What were your other two wishes?
