How to Go from Overwhelmed to Empowered Through Estate Planning

If you are a woman who is thinking about creating an estate plan, then join Attorney Elsa W. Smith for this important webinar. Elsa will discuss the obstacles women from various backgrounds face when creating an estate plan.

She will then transition to solutions that estate planning offers, providing anecdotes as examples in a nonjudgmental safe space. The webinar’s objective is to communicate that estate planning is a “must have” instead of a “nice to have.” Elsa will take your questions after her presentation as well as encourage you to take action toward protecting your legacy.
