Estate planning is an area of law that has significant benefits for those people who take advantage of the planning process. It is also an area of the law that requires clients to contemplate their own mortality and prepare for a time when they will not be there to care for their loved ones, or perhaps even themselves. Facing difficult concepts and decisions frequently keep people who can otherwise derive great benefit from having an estate plan, from engaging in the process.
Our goal is to provide an entertaining and educational resource that provides people with the information they need to begin the estate planning process without feeling intimidated. In addition, we want to provide insight into the evolving law affecting estate and tax planning as well as provide plain language explanations of the complex legal concepts involved with estate planning.
We welcome your comments and suggestions, including your questions about estate planning and guidance as to what information would be most beneficial to you.
