Hi there, Bridget Mackay here again. Following up on our Game of Thrones theme and how it applies to estate planning.

I’m an attorney in Petaluma and I practice in the area of estate planning and elder law. We last talked about not doing a “do-it-yourself” will like King Robert Baratheon did in Season one.

Following along with that, if we look at the Stark family. Don’t stop at a will. It’s really important for you to maybe do a thorough trust and take care of everybody in your family if you can. In that way you will be able to talk about your succession planning, you’ll be able to avoid court when your family members start dying or get scattered to the four winds you know you’ll still have a plan in place that everybody is addressed in and comes back to. That’s the lesson there is, don’t stop with a will get a more thorough plan to protect your family.
