Preserving Family Heritage – Estate and Legal Planning Seminar – Cat Spring Ag Hall – July 16, 2018
Transitional planning is a daunting task to navigate as families begin to plan for the next generation with a focus on preservation of family assets. The second session in a three part agricultural law series offered by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension in Washington, Fayette, and Austin Counties will focus on this very topic. Make plans to join us on July 16, 2018 at Cat Spring Ag Hall for the Preserving Family Heritage – Estate and Legal Planning Seminar.
Presentations throughout the seminar will focus on: Overview of Estate and Transition Planning, Business Entities, Trusts, and More, and Understanding Probate and Alternative to Probate. A duo of multi-generational agriculturalists and attorneys focusing on agricultural issues will provide presentations and be available to visit with attendees throughout the seminar. Tiffany Dowell Lashmet currently serves as the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Agricultural Law Specialist based in Amarillo and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with attendees. Stephanie Bradley Fryer, an Associate with Shahan, Guevara, Decker, Arrott in Stamford, Texas represents farmers, ranchers, and other rural Americans with estate planning and administration, oil and gas matters, real estate transactions, and other agricultural issues.
A lunch meal will be provided thanks to the generous support from Citizens State Bank, Capital Farm Credit, AgWorkers Insurance, and Texas Farm Credit. Sponsor booths will be set up at the seminar and attendees will be able to visit with representatives from each about services they offer.
