Attorney Bret Jones hosted a seminar on “Probate: Proper Estate Planning May Help to Avoid It” at the Lake Morton Public Library on Tuesday evening, October 29, 2013. Thanks to The Ledger, Better Living for Seniors and the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce, 48 people attended to learn about asset protection, the difference between a Will and a Trust, the probate process and costs associated with a probatable estate and how assets transfer at one’s death. After speaking for a half-hour, Attorney Jones took questions from the floor for over an hour, assisting our community in avoiding the frustration and cost of probate for their families.
