Friends and clients: no document is official until it is formally signed before a notary and possibly witnessed. When drafts are sent to you, they are not legally effective until signed. I write this as I was just asked by a client heading to surgery next week if he is covered by his drafts. Please schedule time to get your documents signed in plenty of advance of your surgery, vacation, etc. Thank you!
