May 19, 2016 – Media Mention

Brian Raftery was quoted in Reuters regarding the uptick in the drafting of wills since the death of rock star Prince. Prince died in April without a known will, leaving his family the expensive and time-consuming process of a state-ordered probate. Raftery told Reuters that while a high-profile celebrity death might lead to a flurry of estate planning discussions, personal life events typically motivate most people to draft a will.
