Shaina A. Case, Hirst Applegate partner specializing in estate planning and estate and trust administration, traveled to Casper, Wyoming on September 29, 2022 as she was honored to be asked to speak on a panel regarding “Building Your Financial Team,” as part of the 2022 Connect2Women Conference. Shaina, along with panelists Joe Bennick, Financial Advisor with RBC Wealth Management (Casper), and Melanie Urwiller, CPA with Lenhart, Mason & Associates, LLC (Casper), discussed the importance of why we need a financial team. Specifically, Shaina emphasized how estate planning attorneys, financial advisors, and accountants work together as an individual’s “dream team” in order to be sure that they, and those who survive them, are cared for upon death or disability. The panel was designed to hopefully empower those attendees with knowing the right questions to ask and professionals to engage when they begin designing their estate plan, are looking to retire, or need any form of tax advice.
