Why You Should Avoid Traditional Estate Planning

By Lee Brower

Traditional estate planning ruins families.  You don’t believe me?  Watch this video and think of these three reasons to avoid traditional estate planning:

  • Not only does traditional estate planning divide assets, it divides families by shifting priorities from “we” to “me”;
  • Most law firms won’t engage in thoughtful, family-centric planning because they can make more money by avoiding this sort of planning until it’s too late;
  • Most successful families initially wanted to have financial wealth in order to have greater freedom but in the process they lost that freedom in order to accumulate the financial wealth.  Traditional estate planning creates less, not more, freedom.
