Information

Why Attend?

Legal competence requires you to be up to date with technology, as the world is becoming increasingly reliant on our computers and the Internet.

  • Learn what to do and how to plan for the death of someone who has online bank and investment accounts, medical accounts, email accounts, Facebook accounts, shopping accounts that might hold credit card information, and more.
  • Discover federal and state statutes and regulations that apply to the transfer of guns and other weapons.
  • Review special laws that may apply to pets, pet trusts, and unusual assets, even airline miles.

This presentation discusses different types of property your client may own that require special planning but are often overlooked: digital assets, guns and other weapons, and beloved pets.
