Register Now! Classified Symposium - I Hope You Die Laughing: A Guide to Nevada Estate Planning

Protect your personal and family treasures! Individuals put off estate planning because they think they do not own enough, they are not old enough, they are busy, think they have plenty of time, they are confused and do not know who can help them, or they just do not want to think about it. Then, when something happens to them, their families have to pick up the pieces. Knowing you have a properly prepared plan in place to protect your treasures, one that contains your instructions and will protect your family, will give you and your family peace of mind. No matter how large or how modest your estate might be, it is important to make your own decisions regarding your end-of-life care and develop strategies. Estate planning is not just for those who are retired or wealthy, it is for everyone. This session will answer questions, provide information, and allow you the opportunity to talk with a local, established professional with years of experience.
