Scholarly Lectures/Writings

  • “[Trial & Heirs] ignited a lively discussion with family and friends during a holiday gathering.  Everybody who has read or discussed it has pledged to get their financial affairs in order. You can’t take it with you, so you want to organize your affairs so that they won’t cause a hassle among your loved ones when you go.” ~Avis Thomas-Lester The Washington Post “[The celebrities featured in the book] all flubbed their estate planning, costing intended heirs money and/or grief, according to a readable (really) estate planning how-to book, Trial & Heirs. The new book uses these celebrity cliffhanger cases to dish out real-life advice.” ~Ashlea Ebling Forbes.com “If TMZ and Bankrate.com had a literary baby, it would be “Trial & Heirs.” … “Trial & Heirs” manages to accomplish a stunning trifecta of near impossibilities for a book about estate planning. Not only does it entertain, it deeply educates and also galvanizes readers into taking action to protect their families and their legacies.” ~Tara-Nicholle Nelson Inman News Service “[Trial & Heirs] is by far the most educational and clever book I have read in a long time.  While not in the genre of the typical book for “dummies,” it is written in a manner that will keep trust novices, as well as seasoned professionals, interested until the very end". Kim Fowler ABA Banking Journal “The authors take what is a very dry subject and make it not only educational but also interesting.  What's nice is there's not a lot of fine print to bog down readers in the process.  By taking estate cases of famous people and boiling them down to situations to which readers can relate, this book belongs in the library of every American over the age of 18.” ~Lisa Allmendinger Heritage Newspapers “Whether you pick up the book for a peek at the messed up estates of celebrities or you desire to learn more about this topic for yourself, it’s a great introduction to a subject most of us are reluctant to discuss. This is also a great book for financial planners, attorneys and other professionals to give to their clients who don’t have a will or trust.” ~Cathy Severson RetirementLifeMatters.com “It’s so well written and fun that even a person like me, who hates money talk, can enjoy it.  And anyone reading it will learn a great deal.” ~Carol Bradley Bursack Minding Our Elders., co-author, Trial & Heirs: Famous Fortune Fights!, Wise Circle Books, 2012
