"Prior to attending a seminar on estate planning and charitable giving, I had never heard of a revocable living trust. After consulting with Lee Mulligan, reviewing my estate assets, and most importantly, the abilities of my potential successors to carry out my wishes, I decided that a revocable living trust was my best estate planning option. Lee and her staff have been very helpful as they explained and led be through the process of creating my trust. I look forward to my continued professional relationship with Lee Mulligan and the staff of Strauss and Associates."
