New Jersey Wills and Estates Practice

1h 39m

Created on June 28, 2015




Generally the only time people think about making a will or taking care of their estate is when they are dying or are in their "twilight years." However, the time to have a will prepared and to take care of your estate is when you become an adult.


Quite often people find themselves preparing a will or getting their estate together at the last minute. Attorneys who practice family law can often influence clients during divorces, etc. to have a will prepared and to get their estate in order. Even if you are not an attorney who practices estates, you can still prepare and advise on wills and estates, and, upon viewing the program, can add this to one of your many areas of practice.
