UNION — On Wednesday, Aug. 18, at 7 p.m., the Union Public Library will host a presentation explaining the basics of estate planning and the creation of wills and living wills. The program is sponsored by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation and will be presented by veteran Mercer County attorney Herbert D. Hinkle.
When preparing a will, careful planning is essential to ensure that family members are protected, that assets are not needlessly depleted, and that tax exposure is minimized. Union Library patrons will learn how their assets can be utilized in the best interest of their loved ones and other beneficiaries. Additionally, patrons will gain knowledge about guardianship, durable powers of attorney and “living wills” – methods available to legally empower one person to make decisions for someone who may not be able to make decisions for him or herself.
Herbert D. Hinkle has represented people with disabilities and the elderly continuously since 1974. He holds a JD from Rutgers University and a Masters in Taxation from Temple University. He is a widely published author and lecturer and is also an adjunct professor of law at Rutgers Law School, Camden, where he teaches trusts and estate planning.
The Union Public Library is located at 1980 Morris Avenue in Union, New Jersey. For further information, call the reference department at 1-908-851-5452.
