The reSolve Group Hosted the Estate Planning Seminar with Matt Shafae

Thank you to all who were able to attend our Estate Planning Seminar with Matt Shafae on Saturday, January 21, 2023. 

We will provide a link to the video of this presentation on this page as soon as it is available. 


The Topic of Discussion:

Estate planning attorney Matt Shafae will walk us through the estate planning landscape, discussing wills, trusts, powers of attorney, the probate process, and some basic tax concepts. The program will have three main focuses: planning for families with young children, how to review an existing estate plan, and an explanation of the Prop 19 tax scheme. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer period. Whether you have small children, aging parents, preparing for retirement, or want to protect your life's work, join us to learn why everyone needs a current, comprehensive estate plan.
