Seminar to assist in estate planning process

by KEATON T. DEPRIEST Associate Editor

Korman Korman The Williamsville Business Association will sponsor a free one-hour seminar detailing estate planning at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20, at the Village Meeting House, 5658 Main St., Williamsville.

The program will feature attorneys David A. Brody and Joshua Korman, of Brody and Korman PLLC, as guest speakers.

“Although it is a Williamsville Business Association event, anyone in the public is invited to attend, and we would love to have more people there,” Korman said.

He said the program will include information about wills, trusts, health care directives, and powers of attorney. “What we’re trying to do with this is to give people an hour primer of the basic information,” Korman said. “We would like to condense all the information into 45 minutes and then allow 15 minutes for questions from the audience.”

He said other topics that will be briefly discussed include business succession planning as well as preparation for collectors, such as antiques enthusiasts.

“My whole family is in the antique dealer business,” Korman said. “I was always exposed to that line of thinking, and that’s how I started working with that facet. I found that a lot of times, a person’s family sometimes isn’t into the collecting and when the person dies, it leaves the family unsure of a collection’s value. You want to make sure that you get the most out of a collection.”

He said the program will assist adults through all stages of their lives, including the early years of marriage through the ages of retirement.

“We will also discuss preplanning funeral arrangements,” Korman said. “We are trying to give people the basics of a very complex area.”

In addition to the WBA and Brody and Korman, the seminar is also sponsored by Beach-Tuyn Funeral Home Inc.

Refreshments will be served during the program.

The seminar is free, but reservations should be made by contacting Brody at info@brodykorman.com.
