Summary

After ten years in business herself, Freya Shoffner gave up her search for a good lawyer for her small company and her family and went to law school. Her goal was to build a law firm that could take care of a small business’ every legal need – from the initial brainstorm, through the years of careful tending, to the flood of profits when the benefits are secured for generations to come. She also wanted that firm to give families, in all asset brackets, the best estate planning possible.

Freya reached her goal, and now Boston has a law firm that takes excellent care of small businesses. Like the businesses it represents, the firm is small. Just a few attorneys, with decades of experience in business and in law, devote themselves to their clients and their needs.

Society of Financial Service Professionals
Today’s families take many forms, from married couples with children from previous marriages and who have children together, to couples who are not married and have children from previous unions, to families with children born of surrogates, to grandparents who have adopted their own grandchildren just to name a few. These families have all sorts of complex estate and financial planning issues, including the potential disinheritance of their children and grandchildren, protecting their current spouse or partner from their children of a previous union, protecting assets from their former spouse and their children’s former spouses, and disputes about the authority and responsibilities between the various family groups. This Webinar will present several different family scenarios, identify the issues, point out what went wrong, and outline effective estate planning approaches that will solve the problem.
