Gabriel Katzner navigates the complex climate of recent estate planning law (proposed) changes. Jason and Alex crossfire questions at Gabriel in an attempt to better understand the potential implications on all of us as it pertains to taxation effects of our retirement assets, creditor protection on those same assets and much more.
In this show you will learn about:
