Welcome to Life/Death/Law. A podcast about estate planning, an issue that affects all of us, because we’re human. Lawyers tend to make estate planning both boring and hard, but I think it doesn't need to be either one. After 20 years writing about it and writing estate plans for hundreds of families, I actually think it's a fascinating and rich topic. Death is like sex. We all do it, but we're often afraid to talk about it. I’m Liza Hanks and I am here to answer your questions with no judgement. Are you ready? Let's get started.
