To quote Sir Charles Barkley, “Father Time is Undefeated.” On a long enough timeline, everyone dies. Worse yet, due to advances in medical technology, chances are that you’ll live longer, but experience some form of incapacity during your lifetime.This course will cover how best to be prepared. An overview of the estate planning basics will be discussed - what it is and seeks to accomplish, and what can and should be included. Creative solutions / practice tips in this area will be discussed as well.

Attorney Chris ScarcellaChris Scarcella
As an estate planning attorney, I pride myself on helping people leave their loved ones with positive and lasting memories of who they are and the values that they stand for. I’m an actively involved member of the Academy of Special Needs Planners and the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and communicate with my peers to stay on the cutting edge of the law. While I am proud of the value that I provide to my clients through my career choice, I like to think that I can do so much more for the community and seek a lifetime of giving back. To this end, I run a legal clinic that has led the California State Bar to honor me with the Wiley W. Manuel Award for Pro Bono Legal Services. I also serve on the Board of Directors of Community Senior Services, a well-respected non-profit organization serving our senior population.
