All too often, when asked whether clients have an estate plan in place, they will say “yes” and assume everything is taken care of when they have nothing more than a simple will in place. Although a simple will is a good start, it is not enough – especially when it merely restates Wisconsin’s laws of intestacy! Learn how to recognize estate planning pitfalls for your clients and also explore some DIY estate planning options.

Join us at the High Point Square Conference Room, 414 D’Onofrio Drive, Madison, Wisconsin. Free continental breakfast will be served. Seating is LIMITED, so register today for this FREE educational seminar by calling (608) 829-2525 or by email at
