GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. –“The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare”-Juma Ikangaa, Marathon Runner
Just like you should never run a race without a good race plan, you should not go through life without a good estate plan.
To answer questions about estate planning and in honor of National Running Day on June 5, Foster Swift attorney Jonathan J. David releases his book, Estate Planning: You Have to Start in Order to Finish.
While it’s never an easy subject to discuss with loved ones, David explains the value of a comprehensive estate plan and why creating a “do it yourself estate plan” using online forms is like buying poorly fitting running shoes.
Readers will find definitions to common estate planning terms along with guidance for often-asked estate planning questions such as:
- Does having a will help me avoid probate?
- How do I protect my spouse and my children if something happens to me?
- What documents make up a typical estate plan?
- What happens if I die without a will?
This free e-book is available for download and can be found on David’s bio under ‘Attorney Directory’ at fosterswift.com
as well as the firm’s Elder Law blog page at mielderlawblog.com
. David practices in the firm’s Grand Rapids office and has extensive experience preparing a wide variety of lifetime and estate planning documents such as wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney for both financial and health care matters and living wills.
