At some point everyone has to deal with the legal and financial fallout from a family member dying. Most people are shocked at how bureaucratic, time consuming, and frustrating it is to go through an estate (probate) process. I have chosen estate planning as my focus to help my clients avoid probate court and create plans that support living well and dying well.
