Program Description

Event Details

Craig Alston, elder law attorney and former judge, will discuss estate planning.

When you pass away or your health fails and you face an unacceptable quality of life, an efficient estate plan will save you time and money and your loved ones will have the tools to efficiently care for you and carry out your wishes. Learn how easy it is to gain the benefits of avoiding probate court by using automatic beneficiary designations & ladybird deeds, avoid the use of expensive trusts in most situations, and minimize taxes and costs.

The essentials of basic estate planning documents will be displayed and their magic revealed. Horror stories of people who did not develop an estate plan or relied on an out-of-date estate plan will be presented. Participants will gain an understanding of the basic services their attorney should provide them and will be given a guide to the essentials of an effective estate plan.


Registration is required.  Please register in person, by phone, or online.
