Does the whole idea of "estate planning" seem a little off-putting to you? Don't let the legal terminology fool you. Estate planning doesn't have to be difficult, expensive, or depressing.

Estate planning is something you do for your family. Get it done, and you'll feel better knowing that you've taken care of them. This free clinic is hosted by Alpine Legal Services.
