LACF Hosts Free Estate Planning Workshop December 11

The Los Alamos Community Foundation invites the community to a workshop on the basics of estate planning Monday, December 11, from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at UNM-LA. Join us for an overview of common estate planning tools and discussion of how these may apply to you and your loved ones.

Estate Planning Basics is presented by local attorney Shay Burns Kendricks of Miles & Kendricks, LLC. Kendricks received her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Arkansas-Little Rock in 1997 and has practiced law in New Mexico for 25 years.

Topics include last will and testament, revocable or living trust, advanced health care directive, durable power of attorney, transfer on death deed, and ways to include charitable giving in your estate plan. This is a great opportunity to help ensure those you care for are protected and provided for while gaining some piece of mind for yourself.

The workshop is made free to the public through the Diane Warther Soran Endowment for Community Programs. No registration is required. Light refreshments will be provided.
