Do I need a will or living trust?  What happens to my retirement assets? Will I have to pay estate tax? How do I make sure I’ve provided for my children? What are the best ways to provide for the charities I care about? If you have questions like these, you are cordially invited to a free seminar on estate planning to help you find the answers you need.

Our speaker is Kristi Mathisen, Managing Director of Tax and Financial Planning at Laird Norton Tyee. Kristi is an attorney, CPA and Personal Financial Specialist with more than 25 years of finance-related experience. She is on the board of the Washington Planned Giving Council and a past-president of the Estate Planning Council of Seattle.
