Regular price $129.00

Only fifty percent of African Americans have even basic estate planning documents, such as a will, in place. Legendary African American celebrities Prince and Aretha Franklin died without sufficient estate plans—resulting in litigation and significant financial loss to their heirs. Attorney Lori Anne Douglass, who transitioned into estate planning after noticing a lack of attorneys reaching out to African Americans, believes it is time for change. Join us for this webinar, in which Lori will discuss:

  • Consequences of the lack of estate planning in the African American community
  • The impact of estate planning on creating generational wealth in the African American community
  • How to reach out to African American community The importance of increasing diversity in law firms to providing access to legal services in the African American community
  • ABA Model Rule 8.4(g), which prohibits discrimination in conduct related to the practice of law and may apply to conduct impacting both law firm employees and clients.
