Thank you for your passionate discussion and "anonymous" examples of what NOT to do. Everyone needs to hear this presentation. It is shocking that so many people still do not have their 5 main documents in hand to protect their families!

The knowledge of the presenter was definitely more than expected. Ms. Forspan was not only a benefit for those not in the legal professions, but Ms. Forspan was also able to clarify how it affects the accountants who will or should work with the client to ensure their needs and wishes are met

Jin Ho Lee , EA, Attorney
Elizabeth presents information in an efficient fashion and in terms that people can understand and create action items from. Very useful information. Even if you think you know this topic - this is a worthwhile learning experience.
