Free Living Trust Seminar

Friday, Oct. 11, Lakeview Room, at 10 a.m.

Affordable and comprehensive estate planning solutions can be attained, but planning is essential—do you have a plan? Everyone should attend this seminar, even if you have a will or trust. A good estate plan coordinates what happens to your home, savings, investments, and retirement accounts. You’ll receive answers to several questions. Have you considered what would happen to your loved ones in the event of your disability or death? Why a will is not enough. Why many people with living trusts will end up in probate. Learn how to avoid it. If you have your plans finalized, find out what may have changed, needs updating or is still applicable in Arizona. Guests will have an opportunity for questions after the seminar with Attorney Richard M. Dwornik.

Presented by Dwornik Law Firm. Please RSVP by Oct. 10 by contacting 480-809-1014 or to reserve your seat, as seating is limited.
