Whether you have $20 million or just own a modest home and small bank account, everyone should have an estate plan. Wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney and medical directives protect your loved ones, ensure that your wishes are followed and ease the burden on the people to whom your assets pass down. Without these crucial legal documents, your estate could be tied up in probate court and your family may incur unnecessary taxes and administration costs.
Most people do not have even a basic estate plan. Furthermore, a lot of people are unaccustomed to working with attorneys or believe that the legal fees associated with estate planning are too high and not worth the investment. That’s why I believe public education on this topic is imperative.
On Wednesday, October 14, 2015, at 2:00 p.m., I will be presenting “Understanding Estate Planning and Living Trusts” at the Moore, Oklahoma Public Library. This free seminar is open to the public. Anyone who has thought about estate planning but just doesn’t know where to start is encouraged to attend. We will discuss the basics of estate planning and living trusts and how estate planning can give you peace of mind, leaving you free to enjoy what you’ve worked so hard to earn knowing that your loved ones will be taken care of.
Attendees will be entered into a raffle for a $100 gift card to Charleston’s Restaurant in Norman. Attendees will also have the opportunity to signup for a free initial estate planning consultation with me as well as receive free digital access to my upcoming eBook on estate planning. Check back in the coming weeks for more information and updates. I hope to see you there!
