The March 22, 2023, meeting will include a presentation by Stacy Singer, on the topic "The Estate Planner's Guide to Religious Implications in Estate Planning". 

When an estate planning attorney is working with someone strong in their faith, especially when that client has a different faith than that of the attorney, doesn't the attorney provide a greater service to the client with an understanding of how the client's faith might impact their estate plan? In this presentation, Stacy Singer will discuss how the religious requirements of Christianity, Islam and Judaism may impact the estate planning for clients who practice those faiths. The ethical implications of those requirements will also be discussed.
