Baby Boomers are even worse about estate planning with over 40% of the generation neglecting to even have a will.

Good information about the need and importance of estate planning that should motivate everyone to take action.



You are providing a great service in getting the message out. Estate planning is vital and its is as you mention a very overlooked but essential procedure for everyone. In my practice, I see the results where people fail to have an estate plan. The irony is that the family ends up spending much more in legal fees and lost time where no planning was done and most importantly, where the attorney was in over his head. Readers need to get with an estates/tax attorney who does estate planning regularly and often. There is no substitute for experience and consistent involvement in these matters.
