MRG is hosting two great events in Ashland in early June. You can learn everything you need to know to get started with your estate planning and the following night, get together with other progressive folks to talk politics with MRG’s Executive Director, Sharon Gary-Smith!

Estate Planning 101

Monday, June 4th from 6:30 – 9pm
Science Works Museum, 1500 East Main Street, Ashland

Take advantage of this great opportunity to learn from local attorney, Allen Drescher. Whether you have your estate plans all set but want to get the latest information on what’s changed in the world of estate law, or you need to get started with your planning, this workshop will provide you with the basics you’ll need to move forward.

This informative and interactive workshop will cover a wide range of areas including:

  • New estate laws
  • Power of Attorney
  • Wills and Trusts
  • Medical Directives

Allen Drescher has a long and distinguished legal career beginning in the 1970s when he worked for Multnomah County Legal Aid. He opened his Ashland practice in 1973 and beginning in the early 1990s, has focused on estate planning and elder law. He’s been an Ashland Council member, a municipal judge and in 2006, Allen was elected Ashland’s “Citizen of the Year” by the local Chamber of Commerce.

We will provide materials, refreshments and an opportunity to learn and ask those questions you’ve had for so long about estate planning!
