Money Matters: Estate Planning

Come to learn about the most common (and important) estate planning tools in California including wills, trusts, and powers of attorney. These tools are useful to women in all walks of life, and particularly to women in the "sandwich" generation, i.e., those who are or may soon be caring for aging parents and dependent children. Estate Planning lawyer Loulena Miles will discuss how to nominate a guardian for minor children, how to "step into another person's shoes" to transact business on their behalf, and why not doing estate planning is such a bad idea. Bring your curiosity and questions.
