The Before & After of Estate Planning & Asset Protection

May 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Elder Law Attorney Wendy Guthro will discuss the essential legal documents you should have to prepare for whatever life throws your way. The discussion will include the difference between a will and a revocable or irrevocable trust, how to use each, and how your estate is handled based upon the estate plan you implement. There will be time reserved for questions after the presentation.

In 2005, she obtained her Juris Doctorate from Massachusetts School of Law and was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar the same year. She earned admittance to the New Hampshire Bar the following year.
