MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley (Estate Planning)

In 2016 we have seen many musicians pass away. Almost daily we are surprised with headlines of celebrity deaths. The story we often fail to hear is the mess that's left behind for survivors if estate issues are not taken care of before hand. For those who haven't yet done any estate planning -- finalizing legal documents to manage and pass on property and set out wishes for end-of-life matters -- it's likely on their list of things to do.

We were joined by Estate Planning attorney Robert "Eli" Kiefaber . 

Robert “Eli” Kiefaber is dedicated to providing comprehensive and highly personalized counsel in estate planning, wealth preservation strategies, beneficiary and inheritance protection and business planning. As co-founder of Kiefaber & Oliva LLP, he holds the firm’s value of exceptional client services and lawyer accessibility. Eli has a holistic approach to estate planning and designing wealth preservation strategies. He focuses on listening closely to the concerns, goals, dreams and values of his clients. He works closely with his clients throughout the estate planning process to develop strategies that achieve the goals and values of his clients. As a husband and father, Eli recognizes that estate planning is more than avoiding probate or estate taxes, but providing and caring for families and loved ones.
