Why Your Current Estate Planning May Not Be Enough
Feb 7 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Please come join on us on February 7, 6:30 p.m. to at the Peninsula Library to discuss “Why Your Current Estate Planning May Not Be Enough” with local attorneys, Attorney Heather R. Johnston and Certified Elder Law Attorney Erica A. Skerl.  We will discuss the importance of having a properly set up estate plan to completely avoid the necessity of probate as well as the ability to avoid losing all of your assets to a nursing home. Unfortunately, documents found online can be inadequate and many legal practitioners are simply not aware of the best practices. Recent changes in the law make it even more critical to make sure you are up to date and prepared for the future.  If you own a home or vehicle, have retirement or stock assets, or have children – you need an estate plan.  RSVPs to the library are appreciated to assist in planning and set up, but are not required. We look forward to seeing you!
