What will happen to your family and assets after your lifetime? Who will get your things? Who do you trust to make sure your estate is taken care of? These are some of the questions to consider with Estate Planning.

Local estate planning attorney John Roth will explain how proactively planning with estate planning can save your loved ones the headache of guessing what you would have wanted or not knowing where to start.

The best time to plan is when there is no need to do so. This program will include basic estate planning strategies to minimize disharmony within your family during, and after, your lifetime, illustrated with historical and fictional examples of trusts.
