OVERVIEW

This course uses the lives of the rich and famous as a template to better understand the realm of estate planning. In discussing familiar names such as Jackie Kennedy, Joan Rivers, Jimi Hendrix, James Gandolfini and Leona Helmsley, the course examines the pitfalls and best practices surrounding famous estates.
