This is the third program I have seen Mr. Shenkman present. He is truly excellent.
Very informative. Speaker was very good and held your interest.
Speaker referred to this subject as a "fluff" topic but he helped me to realize the importance of factoring in the human aspects in estate planning. Great speaker and great topic.
While this topic may be considered to be slightly "fluff" (as stated by the lecturer), it gives the practioner many things to consider that they usually do not think about.
Some really great points that I haven't seen touched on in other estate planning sessions
good program, speaker raised pertinent issues.
This seminar was inspiring. Mr. Shenkman is first-class all the way, both as legal practitioner and counselor.

Very Informative; presented an approach to EP that I had never heard during an EP mcle although I have used some of the suggestions when dealing with clients in my practice.
FANTASTIC!!! This kind of thing is why I started my own practice - to have the freedom to provide legal services that address a client's situation as a whole. Well done!!!

Great Program. I wish there was more of it. Also I would have loved to have more specifics in the course documents, rather than just an outline of the speaking points.
