About Our Free Seminars

Our office frequently provides free estate planning seminar style workshops to the public. Mr. Ward is also available to speak to private groups about Estate Planning, Elder Law and Medi-Cal Planning. Our estate planning seminar workshops typically go for a 90-minute period with a break after the first hour. Some groups prefer a short introductory presentation that’s five or 10 minutes in length followed by a question and answer period. If you’d like to book Mr. Ward for a speaking engagement  for your group, please call our office. In the first hour, Mr. Ward covers estate planning and tax considerations. We then have some refreshments and take a break for 15 or 20 minutes; in the second part of the workshop we cover Medicare and Medi-Cal Planning. We offer a free, private consultation for people who attend the workshops.
