Inheritance Planning seminar at Keller-Williams Realty

Inheritance Attorney and Best-Selling Author Jeffrey L. Condon spoke at a free seminar on “HOW TO DIVIDE THE FAMILY MONEY – WITHOUT DIVIDING THE FAMILY”.   The event was held on May 8, 2015, at Keller-Williams Realty, 2701 Ocean Park Boulevard, Santa Monica at 10:00 AM.

Mr. Condon did provide attendees with tips on how to:

  • Ensure that your inheritance instructions will be carried out YOUR way…and not how your children want them carried out.
  • Protect your children’s inheritance from creditors, ex-spouses, addictions, tax troubles, mismanagement and other risks of loss.
  • Prevent family conflict that often arises when parents die and children divide the “family money”.
  • Avoid creating inheritance problems in your family with “cautionary tales” of inheritance planning gone bad.
  • Leave more to your children and grandchildren…and less to the IRS.

The presentation did answer common questions like:

  • If I die before my spouse, how do I know he/she will leave the family inheritance to the children instead of to a new found friend?
  • Do I have to name all my children as successor trustees of my Trust?
  • How to prevent my children from becoming enemies after I die?

Mr. Condon says, “You will find the information in my talk invaluable.  95% of the solution to any inheritance problem or concern is recognizing that problem or concern in the first place.  I will raise your awareness on matters that arise in the Inheritance Arena that you never before considered that can cause havoc and chaos in your family…and can cause your children’s inheritance to significantly diminish”.

Nearly 100 people attended Mr. Condon’s seminar on April 22, 2015, at the Santa Monica Public Library.  Many of them commented that not only was it informative, practical and useful, but surprisingly entertaining as well.  As Mr. Condon says, “I refuse to be your stereotypical boring and droning-on-forever attorney”.

Mr. Condon has been practicing in trust, estate and probate law since 1987.  His book, BEYOND THE GRAVE: THE RIGHT WAY AND THE WRONG WAY OF LEAVING MONEY TO YOUR CHILDREN (AND OTHERS)” was called by the Wall Street Journal, the best-selling inheritance planning book in American publishing history.
