Second marriages, blended families, single-parents, and non-married couples–these are just some examples of the modern family. This program highlights key issues that attorneys must consider to ensure that clients’ assets are preserved and transferred to intended loved ones.

A great course for attorneys whose practice areas have estate planning consequences or attorneys who are new to estate planning.
