You need more than a basic will. Having the right estate planning tools in place can help ensure a vibrant future, and provide security for you and your family,” says Mark Gilfix.

Estate planning, at the most basic level, is the act of preparing for the transfer of a person’s wealth and assets after one’s death. Assets, life insurance, pensions, real estate, cars, personal belongings and debts are all part of one’s estate. Estate planning is also about dealing with crises while one is alive, and giving authority to trusted individuals to help you if you cannot manage affairs on your own. Proper estate planning can also help you to minimize punishing taxes, and to protect your assets in case expensive long-term care is needed. Having a comprehensive estate plan in place for yourself or a loved one will ensure family members are protected.

On this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • Critical estate planning tools that every individual must use
    • The importance of each document and how it works
    • State and federal estate taxes
    • Long-term care issues and solutions
    • Next steps to prepare for your future and protect your loved one

Mark Gilfix cares deeply about generosity and community building, in addition to connecting with people and helping them plan for a vibrant future. He practices in the areas of Estate Planning, Elder Law, and Special Needs Planning in Palo Alto, California. He graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Management Science and Engineering. He later attended Loyola Law School’s evening program, working full time while obtaining a law degree.
