New Book To Help Families Avoid Celebrity Estate Planning Blunders

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) October 22, 2009

The highly publicized estate battles of several deceased celebrities have cast a bright spotlight on the importance of having the proper estate planning. Although mega-rich celebrities seem to be affected overwhelmingly by these brutal family squabbles, the new book “Trial & Heirs: Famous Fortune Fights!” is designed to help every family, regardless of income level, avoid the financial pitfalls that drained bank accounts and created huge family rifts for the dozens of superstars profiled in the book.

“Trial & Heirs” uses real stories to help readers steer clear of the same celebrity “estate errors” as they plan for their own “heirs.” The stories cover well known legal fights over famous fortunes: including the recent battles over Michael Jackson’s estate, along with other celebrities like Ted Kennedy; Anna Nicole Smith; Brooke Astor; Heath Ledger, Ray Charles; Princess Di; Jimi Hendrix; Frank Sinatra; Martin Luther King Jr.; and Rosa Parks… as well as many others that most people aren’t even aware of. The book gives readers a front row seat in the courtroom while the authors replay the “tabloid drama”, point out what went wrong in these riveting cases, and teach readers how to avoid similar errors.

“Trial & Heirs: Famous Fortune Fights!” was written by co-authors Andrew Mayoras and Danielle Mayoras, legacy expert attorneys with strong reputations and extensive experience in estate planning, probate, elder law, and litigation. The husband and wife team are two of the co-founders of The Center for Elder Law, The Center for Special Needs Planning, and The Center for Probate Litigation.

“Here we have common problems that could easily be avoided,” says co-author Andrew Mayoras, a probate litigator who writes the popular Probate Lawyer Blog . “We want to teach people about the importance of proper legacy planning, because these fights don’t just happen to the rich and famous,” he says. Andrew says because his job is battling in the trenches of probate court, he sees first-hand the devastation caused by poor planning. “If by writing this book we help keep families from feuding in court, then we’ve accomplished our mission.”

Co-author Danielle Mayoras agrees. “As an estate planner and educator, the most frequent question I’m asked is: ‘How do I get my parents to talk about these issues?’ This book is the answer,” says co-author Danielle Mayoras, a professional speaker, attorney, and credentialed professional gerontologist. “Our goal was to take a difficult topic that no one wants to talk about and make it fun and entertaining with the use of famous stories.” Danielle says they want to spark people into action to protect their families and legacies through the proper estate planning.

The book is scheduled for a November release from Wise Circle Books and is listed at .95.

It is already getting rave reviews from many who have seen advance copies, including: Hollywood producers Karen Baldwin and Ken Wales as well as national radio talk show host Danny Fontana, famed Hollywood publicist Michael Levine and more.

New Guide Provides Dos and Don’ts When Picking a Trustee in California Estate Planning

Free Expert Guide: Picking Your Trustee in California

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2010

Certified estate planning and probate lawyer Janet Brewer has released a new guide, “Picking Your Trustee in California: a Guide for High Net Worth Individuals.”

Brewer has focused exclusively on California probate law, estate planning, and gift-planning law since 1991.

“I’ve just about seen it all,” says Brewer. “Trustees who can’t manage money; trustees who can’t meet deadlines; and trustees whose commitment peters out too soon. I’ve also seen trustees who embezzle funds (and, wouldn’t you know it, rationalize the stealing).”

Whatever the cause, the effects of choosing a poor trustee can be dire. Family members become resentful and estranged. Savings built up over a lifetime are poured into avoidable expenses. And the estate plan is not realized.

“The good news is that with the right trustee, your estate plan has a much better chance of coming off without a hitch,” explains Brewer. In this new 13 page guide, she outlines the “job description” of a trustee in California, and common mistakes to avoid. And at the end is a worksheet to help those doing estate planning for high net worth individuals pick someone who will do a good job.

The free guide can be found on Brewer’s website at

“While we like to think of a trust as taking care of all your estate planning concerns, it’s actually the trustee who has to carry out the orders,” Brewer said. Choosing a trustee is not just bestowing an honor, it’s assigning a real job. There will be forms to fill out, letters to write and bills to pay. Trustees have a special duty to always act in the best interests of the estate and beneficiaries, and not intentionally do anything or make any decisions that could harm them.

Some people automatically pick the oldest child in a family, or a family friend to do the job. That person might have the right temperament and skills, but it’s wise to think through the choice, Brewer said. A bad trustee might delay distributing the assets, fail to account for assets, or otherwise mismanage the estate. A really bad one might even embezzle.

In her guide, Brewer goes through several options when making choices, including the idea of hiring a professional trustee for a fee.

“Whatever choice you make, take time to think it through. That’s where an estate planning attorney can be a big help,” Brewer said.
