The Importance of Your Estate Plan

Posted Dec 13, 2011
Here are a pair of articles for your reading that highlight the importance of proper estate planning.  While the articles focus on a pair of incredibly wealthy individuals, don't let the dollar signs cloud the point while you read through each piece.  The level of wealth isn't an important focus at the outset of the conversation, it is about control and legacy.  Do you want others to control your estate matters and how it impacts your family once you gone as has happened in this article that focuses on reggae superstar Bob Marley's estate, or would you rather see things handled in a manner that suits your feelings as highlighted in the piece on Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis?  These magnified points are exactly why our clients are focusing on their estate plans this quarter and into the next.
