I've been told by numerous clients that one thing they like is how well I analogize, bringing complex things down to earth. But, usually I'm not this comical with it.
A client came in with a couple estates to probate - 1 parent died, then before the estate was begun, the other one died. I explained that the first would still have to be probated,a nd said, "it's sort of like a double play in baseball, you have to throw the stuff to thesecond baseemaan to get one out before you can pivot and get it over to first." And the image of throwing a house around the infield was pretty comical.
When near the end today husband had a meeting so his wife came in to pick up some last papers on the 2nd estate. She'd been with her husband when they went down last time to do the transfer of the first, but didn't understand a lot of the technical stuff like he did. So i said, "It'll feel just like you're in the movie 'Groundhog Day.'"
I also once had a client whose dad had done some... irresponsible home and loan signings becasue he was in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's, as we learned later. We tried to give up these homes to the banks so he could go on Medicaid but the bank kept wanting to negotiate a loan package. In trying to explain the problem to someone, I forget who, my 3-page, single spaced letter giving details began, among other thigns, with this. "This will likely remind you of what I believe Mark Twain said of Russian literature - 'Depression, depression,d epression, and the occasional catastrophe to change the mood."
I don't recall ever having to be that creative in a will itself - but it would be possible, they don't have as much required boilerplate language as trusts. While there re no "will readings" like in the movies, I've told clients that theoretically, a will could probably have one if they really wanted.
