The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Writes About The Increasing Importance Of Digital Assets In Estate Plans.
The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, focuses on how important it is to properly understand digital assets and to account for them properly in estate plans.
DECATUR, GA, October ••, 2023: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Digital Assets And How To Address Them In Your Estate Plan,” in which Ms. Pawley provides a list of digital assets with sentimental and financial value. Pawley asks, “Could you imagine losing every photo of your family upon your death or the death of a loved one, not as the result of a fire or flood?” She continues, “Could you imagine losing every video of your children from their first steps to their graduations and weddings?” Pawley states emphatically, “If your estate plan doesn’t account for digital assets properly, those cherished possessions and memories could be lost to your heirs forever.”
As Pawley notes, “Unless properly understood and properly addressed in your estate plan, your heirs may not be able to gain access to those and other digital assets with financial rather than sentimental value attached.” Pawley states, We live more of our lives online which makes digital assets in estate planning of increasing importance. Digital assets need to be understood and accounted for in the preparation and execution of estate plans.”

In our firm, WE BELIEVE that people should not have to lose everything they’ve worked a lifetime to earn and that every person is an individual who deserves respect and the highest quality of life possible, regardless of age or ability. We also believe that privacy and protection are the keys to personal peace. Born and raised in the Tidewater area of Virginia to a tightknit family with strong military service roots, Shannon learned from an early age the value of hard work and the importance of social awareness to ensure you always leave a situation in a better place than how you entered it. In her junior year of high school, Shannon served as U.S. House of Representatives Page during the 101st United States Congressional Session in Washington, D.C. This experience exposed her to numerous new cultures and worldly issues. Walking away from her experience as a U.S. House of Representative Page, Shannon knew that she wanted to pursue legal studies and be able to assist others in obtaining the best results available in difficult situations.
Shannon earned her undergraduate degree at North Carolina Wesleyan College and pursued a law degree from Michigan State University College of Law. After obtaining her law degree and becoming a licensed attorney in Michigan, she continued her educational pursuit by acquiring a LL.M. (Master of Law) in Taxation from Wayne State University. After moving to Georgia in 2018, Shannon obtained her Georgia law license and has enjoyed being able to pursue her desire of ensuring persons are able to age with dignity, grace and independence.
