On October 13 at 8:00 a.m., A to Z Law partner Kendall A. VanConas will present “Legal Preparation for Aging and Incapacity:  The Fundamentals of Estate Planning.”  Designed as an introduction to estate planning, the seminar will cover trusts, wills, powers of attorney for asset management, and advance health care directives.  Ms. VanConas will discuss how the different ways of holding title to property can affect an estate plan, and will also give an update about current changes in the estate tax laws.

Ms. VanConas received her bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Los Angeles, her law degree from Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles, and her master’s degree in taxation from Golden Gate University.  She is active with the Ventura County Bar Association, serving as President in 2010, and probate and estate planning section chair from 2007-2009.  She is also a member of the Trusts & Estates Section of the California State Bar, and a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law by the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization.

In November, Melissa Sayer will present  “Think Twice Before You Act-Responsibilities of Owners and Officers in Small Businesses and Non-Profits,”  where she will discuss how the current economic environment has drastically increased claims for breach of fiduciary duty among business owners.  More information on that seminar will follow.
