Dale & Eke is taking the COVID-19 outbreak very seriously.  So, for the purpose of maintaining social distancing under CDC guidelines and to promote the health and safety of our clients, visitors and staff and reduce the spread of COVID-19, our physical office will be closed until further notice.

For the time being we are limiting all in-office meetings to those clients and potential clients who are not feeling ill or who have not shown signs of illness.  However, we are recommending that, unless you make other arrangements with your attorney, all client and potential client meetings occur via telephone or video conferencing.  If you have any paperwork for us that you need to drop off, please use the mail slot outside of the front door to our office.

We can still be reached at our office telephone number (317-844-7400). Your call will be answered by our office phone system and you may leave a voicemail in the general mailbox or with a specific attorney. All voicemails left in the general mailbox will be routed to the requested attorney or staff.

You may also email the firm through its website at  www.daleeke.com.

We will continue to monitor this evolving situation and adjust procedures as necessary.  Your health and safety, and the health and safety of our attorneys and staff, is our highest priority.  We thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain and unprecedented times.

Can you better protect your assets for the long-term?

The assets you have accumulated over the course of your lifetime in Indiana have been carefully selected, maintained and utilized in order to maximize their benefit for your long-term use. One of the biggest challenges you may face is how to protect these assets against unwanted use. Adequately shielding your assets from premature or unauthorized use is imperative to your ability to continue to enjoy them for many years to come. 

One way that you can protect the assets you have is to be well informed about their purpose and the penalties you may face if you mishandle them. Your education about various types of assets and the best way to add to them while maintaining them is crucial to your effort to optimize their success and longevity. According to Money Crashers, one way to keep your assets safe is to keep them separate from each other. Find effective ways to manage your various assets without combining them because each may have their own contingencies and their own benefits. 

Having adequate insurance is another way that you can better protect yourself, your assets and your future. Professionals can help you identify which coverage options are the most applicable for your situation, lifestyle and personal preferences and put together a customized plan that will enable you to enjoy what you have worked for. You may also consider gifting some of your assets before you pass away rather than listing everything in a will to reduce your liability.
