Learn how to appoint someone to make healthcare and financial decisions for you when you are unable to do so. If you do not, a court may decide for you. 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. Keynote speaker is Attorney Richard M. Dwornik. Presented by Dwornik Law Firm. You must RSVP to reserve your seat. There is limited seating. Call 480-809-1014 or email [email protected] to RSVP.
