Attorney Joshua N. Garick was featured on a Fox 25 Morning News report about what someone should do when they find out they won the lottery. Attorney Garick was interviewed on various issues, including whether to take a lump sum or annuity, when to come forward, how to maintain anonymity, and how to invest wisely. The truncated segment can be viewed here:
Unfortunately, the actual winner of the largest ever Powerball prize did not heed Attorney Garick’s advice, as she cashed in her ticket in a matter of hours, seemingly without first reaching out to any legal, tax or financial professionals. Wining can be an exciting time, and we certainly do not blame her for wanting to rush to Lottery headquarters to claim her winnings. But all winners should always consult an attorney before cashing in, and the Law Offices of Joshua N. Garick, P.C. is standing by, ready to work with the next jackpot winner.
