Free Presentation on Estate Planning Jan. 18

Come get the facts on Estate Law in an informative presentation by Dorcas Gordon and Rod Dyer of Westcott Law, scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 2 p.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside Building. The event is free and open to the public.

The presentation will focus on estate planning documents that all individuals should have in place, including Revocable Trusts, Last Wills and Testaments, Durable Powers of Attorney for financial matters and Durable Powers of Attorney for Healthcare and Living Will Declarations. The pair will discuss how correct use of these documents can avoid probate and guardianship proceedings, and highlight recent changes in the law which may make it necessary for individuals to update their current documents. Questions from the audience will be welcome.
