Help your clients get it right from the start, and avoid needless problems later on. Whether your client is the Principal or agent or relative, Tim, an experienced fiduciary litigator, shares his experience from cases that went wrong. This course is valuable to estate planners with any level of experience, as well as to lawyers who deal with their own family POAs. Complimentary to Tim’s course, “Beware the POA,” this one hour seminar runs through the early steps of correctly preparing a POA, with an eye to the future. Tim’s short Executive Summary is a great take-away, in addition to his slides which are chock-full of law, procedure and common sense. Invest just an hour, and know you are doing it right.
