-- Evan Guthrie of the Evan Guthrie Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina taught an class covering the basics of estate planning and probate at The Bridge At Charleston in North Charleston, SC on Thursday July 19th 2012. The Bridge At Charleston is an assisted living community that has stunning surroundings, outstanding services, an abundance of amenities, and dynamic activities. Attorney Guthrie taught the class in the main living area in the front of the facility that had a open space and many chairs and couches. The class lasted about an hour in length and covered an introduction to planning an estate that include what an estate actually is, what kind of assets can comprise an estate, what happens if one has no plan for their estate, different types of plans, the difference between a last will and testament and a revocable living trust, how to protect oneself in case of capacity with a durable power of attorney, how to plan ahead for difficult medical decisions with advance directives including a healthcare power of attorney and a living will, how estate taxes work, the mistakes most people make in planning, and a checklist of items to considering when making or updating a plan. Attorney Guthrie spoke to a good number of residents at the Bridge and the audience kept increasing as the word spread about the presentation that was going on and the topic of the presentation.
Those in the audience had a great number of questions such as how to best communicate with a child that lived out of state to update a plan, the different choices that had to be made when making advance directives, and what to do if they wanted to completely change their plan. Mr. Guthrie was happy to speak the residents and answer all of their questions and concerns. This was the first time that Attorney Guthrie had taught a class at an assisted living facility and impressed by the participation and back and forth that the audience demonstrated. Mr. Guthrie teaches many classes a year on the subjects of estate planning and probate.
