Join Cassandra Manna, Estate Planning Attorney with Tammy Polenz, President of Vedas Living today as we discuss Estate Planning for Women. Frequently women overlook the importance of estate planning, even in those situations whereby the woman is married and her husband is working with an attorney to arrange future preparations. There is a general misconception that estate planning is only for the uber rich and wealthy. Every adult should have a handful of basic documents created: a will, a healthcare power of attorney, a living will, and a financial power of attorney. When someone does not plan for end of life issues, the damage goes well beyond monetary value and can impact your loved ones in negative ways. Grieving families should not have to worry about making difficult decisions during times of loss. Take the time to learn what you need to do in order to ease the pain of those you love by providing comfort that all is taken care of for them.
Cassandra focuses her practice on estate planning and wealth management, including drafting, amending, or terminating revocable, irrevocable, and legacy trusts based on tax planning needs and goals of the client. Ms. Manna works with clients in all matters relating to their estate and wealth planning including individuals who may be looking to negotiate the terms of a prenuptial agreement, prepare their assets for a smooth transition to a new owner upon death or upon disability, or create a foundation legacy after death; couples, who are looking to take care of their young children, make sure their spouse is cared for when they are gone, who want to protect their wealth after death and protect the interest of grandchildren, to donate to charitable organizations, or to create a foundation in their name; and small to medium sized businesses, whose leadership wants to protect the voting interests and growth of the company from personal complications, including divorce, death, or disability.
In addition, her experience includes helping her client’s companies acquire or sell business, manage their corporate governance, form and organize an affiliated entity, and negotiate and draft commercial leases.
In Cassandra’s spare time she teaches a civics class to 11th grade students at the Thomas Jefferson Newcomers Academy, a CMSD school for immigrant and refugee children. She also plays in a weekly bocce ball league at the Cleveland Bocce Club.
