11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Estates of the Rich and Famous: Infamous Lessons
Both entertaining and informative, this program will examine the lessons to be learned from famous and often contentious celebrity estate disputes that have made headlines in the media.  We will take a look behind the scenes into the lives, deaths, and probate battles of public figures such as Michael Jackson, Anne Heche, Prince, Robin Williams, Lisa Marie Presley, and more.  This discussion will not only reveal the “inside scoop” on these flawed estate plans but also provide tips on how to overcome such pitfalls in the future.
