Did you know CITT's President & CEO is a lawyer who formerly practiced in Wills and Estates? Due to the popularity of this topic, Pina is presenting a followup to the Tips and Traps of Estate Planning webinar.
In this value-added webinar, exclusively for CITT members and students, Pina Melchionna will walk you through the must-know facts about your will and estate planning. This invaluable webinar will address common questions and concerns, as well as surprising considerations you might not be aware of. All without the legal fees!
Building on part 1, this presentation will cover topics such as Power of Attorney, dealing with issues like the family cottage, and avoiding family disputes.
