New Estate Planning Guide Demystifies Process

New Estate Planning Guide Demystifies Process
Albany, NY, September 16, 2008 --( Today’s seniors are often confused and overwhelmed by the estate planning process. "Of course those 60 and over know they need to plan for their eventual death or disability," says New York elder law attorney Mike Ettinger, "but they find it difficult to get the correct advice and are afraid of making a mistake."

Attorney Ettinger’s new Guide to Estate Planning and Elder Law, a free download at, introduces the reader to estate planning and elder law issues, and then sets out the five basic steps to creating an estate plan.

"Avoiding the two major mistakes in estate planning are also crucial," says Ettinger, those being the failure to cover all of the bases at the plan’s inception and not having a program or process to take into account future changes in the client’s health or assets as well as life events such as births, deaths, marriages and divorces.

The new guide will give the reader the basic information they need to know to intelligently interview their estate planning attorney of choice.
