Estate Planning 101: Rules for Effective Estate Planning
This class is an exploration of the basic things that must be done to create an effective estate plan. It answers the questions: What is probate? What is a will? What is a trust? How much do they cost? How do I decide which approach is right for me?
The class reviews the seven reasons why most plans don't work as intended, and offers a strategy to address those problems. Particular focus is placed on the importance of proper titling, the need to train your helpers, and the need to update the legal and financial parts of the plan.
The class is highly interactive; questions are welcome. Participants will receive a loose leaf binder containing forms and checklists to begin their planning, or to review an existing plan.
The class is held in Suite 102 at 160 Gould St., Needham, MA. It generally lasts about 1 ½ to 2 hours, depending on the level of interaction, and the number of questions.

Sure, Bordeaux is famous — maybe a little too famous for its own good sometimes. We're going to shed the snobbery and take it down a notch by sampling fancy French Cabernet and Merlot blends with a selection sliders, cheese, olives, and more. These are classic styles with modern appeal and wines with a famous address and a price tag that don't always match. Trust me: this is not your father's Bordeaux!
