Estate planning is the act of preparing for the transfer of a person’s wealth and assets after his or her death. Assets, life insurance, pensions, real estate, cars, personal belongings and debts are all part of one’s estate. Having a comprehensive estate plan in place for yourself or a loved one ensures family members are protected.

On this webinar, attendees will learn:

• Critical estate planning tools that every individual must use
• The importance of each document and how it works
• State and federal estate taxes
• Long-term care issues and solutions
• Next steps to prepare for the future and protect loved ones

Gilfix cares deeply about generosity and community building in addition to connecting with people and helping them plan for a vibrant future. He currently practices in the areas of Estate Planning, Elder Law, and Special Needs Planning. A Palo Alto native, he graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Management Science and Engineering. He later attended Loyola Law School’s evening program, working full time while obtaining a law degree. There, he was chosen as his class commencement speaker and graduated near the top of his class as a member of the Order of the Coif.

Prior to practicing law, Mark was a management consultant at the Monitor Group (founded by celebrated Harvard Business School author Michael Porter), participating in and leading numerous strategy engagements with Fortune 500 corporations. He is an increasingly sought-after speaker in the field, appearing on KTVU Fox 2 and NBC Bay Area.
