The key is honing in on the best way to protect your clients' interests during their lifetime. This new edition of Estate Planning for Same-Sex Couples by award-winning author Joan M. Burda attempts to address certain struggles for equality and how these issues affect estate planning for LGBT clients. For example, not all same-sex couples get married. This book will help lawyers better represent their clients as they address the present as well as future needs of their clientele."
