Financial Fitness & Estate Planning

(*Note: This event was rescheduled from March 3)

When | Tuesday, May 5 | 7 pm
Where | AVAC Conference Room
Presenter | Diane Brown, Attorney at Law
Cost | Free:-)
RSVP Becky Smothermon

This session will focus on explaining the pros and cons of trusts, as well as other documents that can be prepared to provide for the management of assets if the owner becomes incapacitated or dies. Like many things in life (for example, going to the dentist!), failure to plan ahead will cost the estate more than the initial planning would have. My job is to keep you and your loved ones out of court. It’s your money..Let’s keep it that way! 

About Diane
I have owned my own business since 1986 and have always specialized in trusts and estates. Being married with two children gives me perspective about family dynamics and issues that parents have concerning their children and the management of money. I am a Master Gardener in Santa Clara County. My other hobbies include hiking and camping. I am a member of the Los Gatos Morning Rotary to support my desire to give back to the community.
