Nicole Hewitt, Managing Attorney at HWK Law Group in Maryland, a firm with a focus in estate and business planning, wealth succession & tax minimization planning, elder law, special needs planning and real estate law joins Enterprise Radio.
This episode of Enterprise Radio is working in conjunction with the Legal Corner.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Nicole Hewitt discuss the following:
- Is it a misconception that only the rich need estate planning? Why or why not?
- Who are some classes of people that are at the highest risk if they don’t meet with an estate planning attorney and put an estate plan in place? Why?
- What can a business owner do to protect his business and its value for his/her family?
- What is the role of a good estate planning attorney and the value received?
TIP: Every entrenpeneur or business owner of whatever size should be having a conversation with a well versed estate planning tax attorney. Planning before a family crisis or a business relationship gone bad, will save tens of thousands of dollars, financial distress and strained relationships in the future. Failure to plan is making the choice for others to plan for you.
