Complimentary Estate Planning Workshop

This workshop is taught by Attorney Doug Ley.

We offer the Protect Your “Stuff” in 3 Easy Steps complimentary workshop to answer the most common questions about estate planning. We’ll teach you how everything fits together and sort the facts from fiction. If you know you need estate planning but don’t know where to start, start here.

What will I learn?

Do you have a plan, or just documents?

There is more to estate planning than many people realize. At the workshop you will learn that having documents is not the same as having a plan. You get a plan by personalizing your documents with your voice. Only then will your estate plan accomplish your goals and protect your family if something should happen to you.

Who Should Come With Me?

Bring anyone who is interested.

If you are married, it’s best to bring your spouse. You may want to bring other family members, friends, relatives, coworkers, or even your accountant or financial advisor. Our team approach starts at the workshop. You will find your planning is much more comprehensive and everyone is on the same page.

What do I need to bring?

Yourself. That’s it. We will provide everything you need, including a pen and paper for notes.

We also provide coffee, water, and delicious treats.
