No one likes talking about death, taxes, and financial planning. You probably don’t want to consider how much you’d have to pay your spouse if you divorced, which assets your children would receive if you died tomorrow, or who should be in charge of divvying up your family heirlooms when your beloved parents pass away. These are, admittedly, unpleasant scenarios to ponder. However, if you fail to prepare yourself for them legally and financially, they’ll only become even bigger nightmares if and when they do occur.
Accomplished attorney and estate planning guru Naz Barouti has spent her career empowering women (and men) with the knowledge they need to protect their estates, their families, and themselves. She helps her clients confront and resolve unfortunate, “never thought it would happen to me” situations on a daily basis. While she works with a wide array of clients, Naz prioritizes guiding and assisting women because they are so often woefully uninformed about estate planning and therefore easily fall victim to its complexities. In her work, she’s seen far too many smart, capable, well-educated women completely blindsided when unexpected curveballs complicate their personal and financial lives.
