While it's interesting to peek into the courtroom to see how the rich failed to adequately prepare their estates, the Mayoras' have a much nobler goal. Intertwined with the tabloid stories, they provide in this 60-minute public television special concrete information about estate planning.

While few people like to discuss estate planning, the program provides easy to follow steps to help you understand the process and how to prepare an estate plan that will serve you and your heirs.

Included in the program is an interview with Ray Charles Jr. who shares the story of the mistakes his father made with his estate and the pain the family has gone through as a result.
