What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Michael Simons and Allison Barkwell pull back the curtain and share horror stories of estate planning gone wrong

Seasoned lawyers will pull back the curtain on what happens when people fail to plan, or worse, mistake their Google search for a law degree! Hearing what can go horribly wrong might be just what you need to make good decisions and finally get your estate plan in place. These panelists will compete with each other to see who can “one-up” the other with true stories that are certainly stranger than fiction!
