From Advertiser DAL Law Firm:

What is a Revocable Living Trust?

DAL Law can help you in creating the estate plan which is right for you with a Revocable Living Trust. A Revocable Living Trust is used to protect your assets and avoid probate. Our office works with you in ensuring that a Revocable Living Trust is right for you.

In determining whether a Revocable Living Trust is right for you, it is important to understand what a Revocable Living Trust is. In our initial consultation, we will discuss this in more detail, but a brief overview is provided below.

The largest difference between a Revocable Living Trust and a Will is that a will requires Probate, and a Revocable Living Trust does not. While both a Revocable Living Trust and a Will leave instructions for your loved ones regarding the administration and distribution of your estate, the Revocable Living Trust empowers your Successor Trustee to make such distributions, whereas the Will does not and will require the oversight and approval from a Probate Court.

A Revocable Living Trust is created during your lifetime, and you have complete control of the Revocable Living Trust. A Revocable Living Trust continues to exist after your passing, to allow your Successor Trustee to make the distributions according to your Revocable Living Trust

Our Revocable Living Trust services include:

  • An initial consultation to assess your assets, discuss your wants and needs, explain how a Revocable Living Trust works, and help you decide if a Revocable Living Trust is right for you.
  • Prepare your Revocable Living Trust, which is specifically tailored for you, keeping in mind your wants and needs we discussed in our initial consultation.
  • Unlimited reviews and revisions to ensure your Revocable Living Trust accurately reflects your requests.
  • Execution of your Revocable Living Trust, and we will provide the witnesses and notary

To complete your estate plan, we also highly recommend that we prepare and execute Power of Attorneys and other related estate planning documents.

A Revocable Living Trust can be a very useful tool based on the type of assets, as long as the assets are properly maintained in the Revocable Living Trust. If you do not have an estate plan, or are considering adding a Revocable Living Trust to your estate plan, please give us a call today at (206) 408-8158, or email our office at [email protected].

We look forward to being able to assist you with your estate planning needs!

Lemonade Stand

Natalie & Lilah Nutting are hosting a Lemonade Stand Fundraiser to raise money for the Des Moines Police Foundation TODAY – Monday, Aug. 15th – from 1-4 p.m. at 20819 4th Ave S., Des Moines, 98198 (map below).

They hope the funds will be used for the Des Moines Police Foundation Shop with a Cop Event in December.

Here’s a video of the girls pitching the idea to the Des Moines City Council on Aug. 11, 2016:

The girls started off their summer with a ‘Summer Bucket List’ of items they wanted to accomplish. One item on the list was having a Lemonade Stand to support a local charity. The girls then made a list of the local charities they would like to support and then narrowed it down to the Des Moines Food Bank, Des Moines Legacy Foundation and the Des Moines Police Foundation.

Their final decision was the Des Moines Police Foundation as they recalled being able to attend the Shop with a Cop Event last year and loved helping out at the event so much they wanted to see how they could help this year!

The Des Moines Police Foundation was established in 2014 to raise awareness and provide recognition and support of the Des Moines Police Department by receiving and administering funds exclusively for charitable, scientific, or educational purposes, without pecuniary gain or profit (either direct or indirect) to its members, all within the meaning of Section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Law.

Both girls attend North Hill Elementary School in Des Moines. Natalie is 9 and will be entering the 4th grade and Lilah is 8 and will be entering the 3rd grade.

Their father, Jeremy Nutting, serves on the De Moines City Council and their mother, Yvonne Nutting, serves on both the Des Moines Legacy Foundation Board, the Des Moines Police Foundation Board and is an extremely active member in the North Hill Elementary School PTSA where she served the last two years as their President.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This updated story replaces one from earlier Saturday that had incomplete information about this council meeting. We apologize for the error.

By Jack Mayne

Assistant Des Moines City Manager Michael Matthias was selected by the City Council to be the next city manager, after a previously selected candidate mysteriously and without reason withdrew his application.

Withdrawal of previously approved candidate James Nichols of Douglas County, Nevada, left the Council to consider the second place contender, Matthias. After an executive session Thursday night (Aug. 11), the Council approved Matthias 6-1, with Councilmember Robbie Back opposed. Matthias’ job is contingent upon negotiating a satisfactory contract with the city and getting that contract approved by lawyers and the Council.

Time has been wasted
Mayor Pro-tem Victor Pennington moved to hire Matthias and Councilmember Luisa Bangs seconded the motion.

Pennington said he had been disappointed “at our time being wasted by someone,” referring to the withdrawal of Nichols.

Mayor Matt Pina had started the Council meeting with remarks elaborating on the earlier news release about the surprise withdrawal of Nichols who had been unanimously named by the Council on July 28, but he withdrew before there were any negotiations, and gave no “specific reason.”

Councilmember Back said Nichol’s withdrawal from the offered job “is his loss, the city is going in a good direction. Back said he was disappointed at the candidate research firm and the fact they has a weak group of candidates after a highly endorsement of Nichols.

Back noted current City Manager Tony Piasecki is retiring soon and said he thinks Matthias is a good candidate but said he “felt rushed” at the Council action so he was “not going to vote for this” and was the lone “no” vote.

‘Wonderful things’
“Michael (Matthias) has just done wonderful things with economic development,” said Councilmember Melissa Musser, adding “I have the confidence in Michael to move economic development forward … I think Michael is a lot different that the man he replaces and be that agent of change.”

Musser said that Matthias was the first person to recognize the was time to stop cutting the budget and to suggest seeing new forms of revenue to the city.

Councilmember Bangs said the process of getting a new city manager has been difficult but with support of the staff and the citizens “I don’t see any reason why Michael can’t succeed … with our guidance, our input and our concerns.”

“To wait, for me, made no sense,” Bangs said.

Councilmember Dave Kaplan said the Council had placed a lot of faith in Nichols but “he let us down before we even hand an opportunity to have a conversation about what a contract would look like and that doesn’t mean we haven’t a lot of faith in Michael Matthias …”

“While he was not our first choice, Michael is going to do a good job for the city … and with all of our support will be able to carry out the goals we have set out.”

Pennington noted that Matthias and other department heads “have been brought in from outside with fresh eyes to change the direction of the ship. Change from three people that we hired from the outside and so if you are looking for a city manager from the outside, Michael is new here in the world of longevity.”

Mayor Pina said change from the outside is something Matthias has done elsewhere and he “understands what is going on here in Des Moines.” Pina noted that change is necessary for the city to advance and be successful.

“It is a new day, it’s a new direction,” Pina concluded.

A ‘great conversation’
Pina said earlier in the Council session that Nichols did not get any further information after his selection on which to base his withdrawal, and had not seen what the city might have offered in a contract.

He had “a great conversation” on the phone with Nichols, said the mayor, but Nichols gave no reasons, “he just asked a whole slew of questions.”

“But in my opinion, it is my opinion,” Pina told the council, “it was pretty apparent that this candidate was having some anxieties about assuming the role, the top leadership position within the city, and that probably led to the withdrawal.”

A citizen asked why the name of the selected applicant was publically announced before employment negotiations took place and was told by the city attorney that was required under the state open public meetings act.

Mayor Pro-Tem Vic Pennington said he was disappointed at Nichol’s withdrawal from becoming city manager. “A lot of people devoted a lot of time” to get to Nichol’s selection.

“Right now, I don’t want to know a reason. He pulled out, he left, so be it, we have to move down the road,” Pennington said.

‘Mutual separation’
Nichols was unemployed when he sought the Des Moines job. Until January, Nichols had been Douglas County, Nev., manager. Then there was a “mutual separation agreement.”

“Neither Nichols nor the county issued notice that would have been required under his three-year contract,” reported The Record-Courier newspaper in Minden, Nev. “According to Deputy District Attorney Doug Ritchie, if commissioners were to terminate Nichols’ contact, they would have had to provide him with two months notice, during which he would continue to be paid and then he would receive six months severance.

“The heart of the issue is that Nichols would effectively leave the county,” Ritchie said of the agreement.

“The key phrase is ‘the best interest of the county,’” Commissioner Greg Lynn said in January. “That’s what we’re serving.”

An earlier story in the Record-Courier, Nichols said he “still question the value of my leadership in this organization relative to the board make-up that we have right now,” he told commissioners in January.

“During his Nov. 4 evaluation earlier in the year, Nichols said he felt he’d routinely not met expectations from the county commission as a whole.

“This has been the most challenging period of my entire career,” Nichols was quoted in the Nevada newspaper. “I may have met expectations of individual board members, but I haven’t met the five sets of divergent expectations on a day-to day-basis.”

Nichol’s last day as Douglas County, Nev., county manager was Jan. 29, 2016.

A specific reason for the withdrawal was not provided.

Stormy August Day!

It’s a chilly August day and showers are scattered across Western Washington. Thunder and heavy rain are possible Sunday and Monday afternoons as well.

This is all due to a super cold blob of air in the upper atmosphere rotating in from the north as part of an Upper Level Low pressure system. In other words, this bubble of cold air is going to mess with our summer for a little bit!

We can expect the weather to get warmer and more pleasant by the middle of next week.

TPP-Poster-5-vol-1_Revise2

This week, Seattle-based EKE Pictures announced the world premiere release of The Periphery Project, Volume I, will be on IndieFlix, the membership-based global movie hub.

According to Producer Steve Edmiston (an area resident and Writer/Producer of The Maury Island Incident): “the film tells the story of one man’s mission to expose a secret government operation to spy upon filmmakers.”

The Periphery Project is in part a found-footage feature-length collection of public access show episodes originally broadcast on a Northwest-based public access television. It is also in part a collection of award-winning short films from around the world, each embedded within an episode. According to the show’s anonymous host, each of the featured filmmakers have been placed on a government watchlist, and are now the target of an ongoing government operation to spy on the filmmakers in order to better predict the future.

The filmmakers found the context irresistible.periphery still 2

“We have a long history of domestic spying in the United States, ranging from J. Edgar Hoover’s secret files, to the post-9/11 surveillance explosion launched by the Patriot Act,” Edmiston said. “What most people don’t know is that the U.S. Army, within days of 9/11, began to collaborate with Hollywood filmmakers to try and predict what kind of terrorist acts might be next. When we considered how this initial government foray into the mind of filmmakers somehow twisted into the secret surveillance society we face today, it became apparent that this nearly-lost public access show, airing before anyone had ever heard of WikiLeaks, deserved a wider audience. After all, we’ve heard of Julian Assange and Edward Snowden because, right or wrong, they avoided capture. And we wondered, what happened to the whistleblowers that didn’t?”

IndieFlix viewers will have first access to this story, as well as to the award-winning short films embedded within each episode. Producer Victor Kepler said, “We were seeking an ideal distribution partnership for this hard-to-characterize content, which includes science fiction, conspiracy, thriller, soft horror and comedy genres, all wrapped up in found footage wrapper, and of course, IndieFlix was at the top of our wish list. We’ve worked successfully with IndieFlix before (the IndieFlix original series The Maury Island Incident which led to Hulu distribution), and we admire their long-standing filmmaker-centric, business model.” Edmiston says: “IndieFlix is a Northwest company with an incredible track record of innovation. Of course we love the fact that IndieFlix puts filmmakers first in almost every way imaginable. But even more, we have been impressed by the level of creativity and enthusiasm shown by the IndieFlix team as part of planning The Periphery Project launch.”

The directors with films within the Volume I episodes include Andy Marsh (Noireville), Jon Stout (Bottles), Mark Ratzlaff (Voodoo), Eric Day (The Unnatural) and Gavin and Jason Fox (All the Time in the World).

Here’s a trailer:

At the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market it looks like we will always have to put up with cloudy, cool and windy mornings until the sun comes out. But, that did not stop the determined shoppers from getting their goodies!

And – did you see the fresh organic eggs at new vendor Top Market Trading & Farm? We tried them this weekend in a frittata, pure wow!

We need your help. The market is trying to be waste free and at the same time save money. As a non-profit entity, we need to save anywhere we can. One way to do this is making sure everyone uses the trash/recycled receptacles correctly. We are not charged for disposing of compostable or recyclable materials, so the less garbage we have the more money we save. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Planning to sell your home “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO)? Perhaps you already have a buyer and do not need to market your home, so will not be using the marketing services of a real estate agent. You will still need to have an attorney prepare and review the purchase and sale documents and to advise you during the escrow period. A great way to make sure that your transaction goes smoothly is to employ an experienced real estate attorney to oversee the transaction and help you avoid common mistakes owners may make when selling their own homes.

Real estate law is a product of both Washington State case law and statutes, so is a dynamic area of law that is subject to change, as real estate laws are frequently rewritten and amended. It is important to be aware of current law as it applies to real estate transactions. For example, disclosure requirements are your responsibility as the Seller. You should be aware of the importance of these disclosures and how you can protect yourself now and in the future. Experienced and thoughtful advice from a real estate attorney can ensure that your sale is in complete compliance with all relevant laws and certainly, well considered legal advice will benefit you even after the sale.

If you choose to sell your home on your own, consider hiring DAL Law Firm to prepare the purchase documents and advise you regarding the sale. From the preparation of real estate purchase contracts that meet all the current laws, to advice regarding proper disclosure, and even the financing documents if necessary, your real estate attorney’s contributions will make him or her an invaluable member of your team.
