The Legal Field Guide to Helping Aging Parents


an introduction to estate planning and probate law

to turn confusion into confidence


Watching a loved one become unable to care for themselves and experiencing their death is hard enough without all of the legal issues. In the Field Guide, I’ll teach you the legal issues you’ll run into when someone is incapacitated and when they pass away, how to deal with – or avoid – a legal mess and when it’s time to call in a professional.


Go from feeling overwhelmed and confused to feeling equipped with knowledge, and experience confidence in facing the legal issues you and your loved one will encounter.


Dealing with a loved one’s incapacity and their death is overwhelming for so many reasons.

One reason is that legal issues come up and legal issues can be confusing.

But knowledge is power over confusion.

Learn the basics of the legal issues that come up

and when you need to work with a professional, in the Field Guide.

Isn't having a will enough?

But it takes more to leaving a manageable to-do list and to make sure the plan actually happens. In the Field Guide, you’ll learn how assets move and the role of documents like wills and trusts.
