Daniel Kesten, an estate planning attorney and a speaker at the WCICon 20 in Las Vegas in March, is our guest on this episode. We have a great discussion concerning everything you need to know about getting started with your estate planning. See the full transcription here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/ . Do you need a lawyer or can you do it on your own? If you need one, how do you find the right estate planning lawyer? We talk about pros and cons of probate, wills versus revocable trusts, the five fundamental decisions to make when formulating your estate plan, and other ancillary documents you may need. We get into tax topics like gifts taxes, estate taxes, generation-skipping transfer tax, state estate taxes, and inheritance taxes. We discuss whether you need a life insurance trust, reasons to make lifetime gifts, step up in basis, and why repealing of the estate tax could be bad for doctors. Daniel really gives it to us straight. You will know the next step you need to take in your estate planning after listening to this episode. Daniel is going to be a great addition to the White Coat Investor Conference March.
