In 2009 I wrote my first book. It's difficult to describe how amazing it was. We retired that book and moved to individual topics, described below.
You can view my books on Amazon. Most are available in kindle and paperback format.
POWERS OF ATTORNEY for HEALTH CARE and PROPERTY
This book discusses the parts of powers of attorney where you appoint a third party to handle your decisions in the instance you are unable to do so yourself. It includes a checklist and things to discuss when you are interviewing potential agents.
WILLS, PROBATE AND EXECUTORS, NOT ALL EVIL
This book weighs the advantages and disadvantages of using a will and the probate court to distribute your worldly goods. It reviews the time frame as well as the requirements.
PET TRUSTS, YES FOR THE DOG
Who will adopt your dog, cat, parrot or iguana if they outlive you? Pet Trusts, under Illinois law, includes a checklist of information you need to compile about your pet as well as a major error to avoid when making this document.
LIVING TRUSTS, THE BEES KNEES
Living trusts have been popular. Their main appeal is that handling of your financial matters is private and should be outside of the purview of the court. The drawback of this estate plan is discussed along with factors to help you make the best choice.
WILLS OF FAMOUS FOLK
How did Clark Gable, Elvis, Jane Austin and Katherine Hepburn divide their estates? Who used a will in conjunction with a trust? This book answers the questions. It also has a chapter listing the famous folk who didn't make a will.
Each book has a law dictionary to help you follow the dots.
All books are available on Amazon Kindle. POWERS OF ATTORNEY, PROBATE and PET TRUSTS are available in paperback and kindle.
