With 10,000 baby boomers, the wealthiest generation in history, turning 65 every day and only 44 percent of Americans having a will, Wayne Ball sees a crisis ahead. His mission is to use 43 years of legal experience educating Arkansans about unforeseen costs, avoidable risks and disastrous pitfalls that are likely to occur without proper planning.

“Thirty-trillion in assets are about to change hands over the next few decades. It’s vital to know how to avoid throwing away money and how to prevent unnecessary emotional stress and unintended consequences,” Ball says. “Estate planning is not just for the wealthy. Every adult needs to have certain key documents. Anyone who owns a home or has minor children has an estate worth planning for regardless of monetary value.”

Ball invites you to do your friends, family and neighbors a favor and encourage them to find out what they need to do, how to do it, the benefits of doing it and how little it costs. “They will appreciate your concern, and you will be glad you did.
