By Lane V. Erickson, Idaho Estate Planning Attorney
Life can sometimes offer some interesting lessons for us to learn. When it comes to wealth and owning assets, many of us look to celebrities and live our lives vicariously through their wealth, their fame, or the power they have. Sometimes we even think that these individuals have everything figured out and that they don’t make any mistakes in their lives.
Having been an estate planning attorney now for 20 years I can tell you that even the rich and famous sometimes make incredible mistakes when it comes to their estate planning. They make these mistakes for the same reasons that many of us do. We simply aren’t knowledgeable or experienced enough to understand what needs to be done. It’s for this reason that we always recommend that if you are considering getting your estate planning done or if you have had a family member or loved one pass away recently and you are looking at the probate process, you should hire a qualified and experienced Idaho estate planning and probate attorney to assist you and your family. By doing this you can avoid some of the basic mistakes that even celebrities make.
