Common mistakes made during Estate Planning and how to avoid them, by Estate Planning Attorney Paul Velasco – Saturday March 27 @ 10 am on Zoom!

It’s that time soon – time for our 3rd Breakfast and Learn Seminar in our 2021 Series!

A bunch of you have already signed up – if you have – terrific – you are on the list! And you will be sent a Zoom link this week to use to log on.

If you have not, here are the details:

On Saturday March 27, at 10:00 am, we will be hosting Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Attorney Paul Velasco of Velasco Law Group, expert in creating and administering trusts and doing estate planning for people like you and I who want to protect our assets and plan ahead for our future and the future of our heirs.

This is a seminar not to be missed! Especially if you own real estate or plan to own real estate very soon. And even if you have a trust in place, it’s a good time to learn a little more about it.

Paul Velasco will discuss the basics of estate planning and why it is so important to get it right. His presentation will focus on the most common estate planning mistakes made by individuals and families and the costly problems and disputes that they lead to. In his trust litigation practice, Paul represents successor trustees and beneficiaries involved in disputes or other court proceedings that very often are the result of mistakes, omissions and/or bad planning by attorneys, paralegals or other professionals involved in the estate planning process, or by people who drafted their own documents using Legal Zoom or other online programs. Paul will discuss many of the cases that he deals with on a daily basis and show how proper planning can avoid or minimize family disputes and ensure the decedent’s final wishes are carried out.

Here is some background info about our speaker:
