Frankie Valli's divorce makes for important case law


People in California may know singer and entertainer Frankie Valli best as the lead singer of the Four Seasons, a wildly famous, pop foursome whose hits spanned many decades, most recently reaching new audiences with the Broadway smash hit "Jersey Boys," which was based upon the music and personal story of the Four Seasons. But now a whole new audience of law professionals and students may become familiar with Frankie Valli's name for reasons having very little to do with his music.

Estate planning is the ultimate exercise in preparation


Successful men and women in California know that planning and preparation are critical ingredients in the recipe for success, so it should come as no surprise that preparation is also the key to maximizing that success for the greater good. People chart their course in a career much as they do in life, and with careful preparation and core values as guiding principles, they may grow to prosper and enjoy the wealth they have worked hard to create.

Estate planning to ensure inheritance


People in California may have seen a recent financial news article in Forbes, which discussed the issue of inheritance. Specifically, Forbes explained how people in the Baby Boomer generation may actually be leaning against leaving assets to their children when they pass on. In past years most people in the Boomer generation said they thought it was important to leave an inheritance. That number now sits at under 50%.

Powers of attorney help combat elder abuse


People in California may have seen a recent article in The Wall Street Journal about how many financial firms are now stepping up their efforts to identify and protect senior citizens against financial abuse, when their clients seem to be losing their mental and cognitive abilities. When clients start to exhibit warning signs of dementia or memory loss, some firms are taking steps to provide extra protections to ensure that these clients do not squander their money or fall prey to financial predators.

Life changes require changes in preparation for the future


People in California know that the only constant in life is change. People's lives change in some way each and every day, whether they realize it at the time or not. Some of these changes are obviously bigger than others, and some of them require a great deal of thought and energy to prepare for and react to. One of the major life changes many people go through and some point or another is divorce.
