Phoenix – Radix Law is excited to announce the launch of a new virtual service that allows people to do their estate plan without ever having to leave their house. Radix Law recognizes that times are changing, and it is important to be flexible and adaptable to practical barriers to doing estate plan signings in person.

“What people may or may not know is that you need two witnesses and a notary – and that has always been the challenge for moving a service such as estate planning online,” said Jonathan Frutkin, founder and principal of Radix Law. “We are working with our partners to make this a possibility for the first time.”

The virtual estate planning route is quicker and helps those wishing to practice social distancing and can be done from any location in the world. In addition, during this difficult time, Radix Law is discounting its estate planning rates by reducing costs by a third.

“We recognize that people are reducing costs across the board – but planning your wishes or even who can carry out those wishes, is something that can’t be put on the backburner,” said Frutkin.

While you do still need two witnesses and a notary attend a signing, the Radix system allows you to do all that from your home, only using a computer.

The estate planning complete package also includes a durable health care power of attorney – which is necessary to let your loved one make decisions during a medical crisis. Radix Law believes everyone should have a plan in place. The Arizona Attorney General has a free form which you are able to download and use here.

PHOENIX – The Frutkin Law Firm has become the first Arizona practice to take advantage of the state bar’s trade name rule. It announced it will rebrand as Radix Law on Jan. 1 2017.

There is a long tradition in the practice of law: the name of a firm includes the surnames of the most prominent partners. As law has become such a big business over the past decade, the largest practices in the world are names of partners who have long since passed away.

This tradition was also required by the Arizona Bar until recently. Now, firms can ditch the commas in favor of a more universal trade name.

Radix, in Latin, means “root.” It can mean the root of a tree, the root of knowledge or the root of a number. While the firm’s attorneys come from all over the world, they have decided to be rooted in Arizona.

“Our new name reflects our values,” says Principal Jonathan Frutkin. “We are a business law firm that helps our clients pursue opportunities and fights for them when challenged – and we are rooted right here in Arizona. It is also an acknowledgement that we have grown from being a solo legal practice into a business law firm with almost a dozen lawyers.”

The Frutkin Law Firm was formed in 2007 and now has 11 attorneys with decades of experience. They serve companies, individuals and families throughout Arizona in business and corporate law and related areas, ranging from taxation and asset protection to bankruptcy and estate planning. Radix Law leads the Valley of the Sun in estate planning and trust administration law. Radix Law’s attorneys are respected sources in their field and contribute to local and national media.
