Are you curious about what you might be doing to better protect yourself financially during this recession?  Have you thought about how you should be investing in order to eventually retire?  Have you thought about how you would meet your basic expenses if you were sick or unable to practice law?  Are you satisfied that you’re maximizing your potential tax deductions? 

If any of these questions sound familiar to you, please join the Young Lawyers Division for a presentation on Thursday, August 20, 2009 at 4:30 pm by the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors on these topics. 

After the presentation, there will be a Q&A opportunity for those in attendance.  This event is open to all YLD members and their colleagues and is a free event.  Light refreshments will be served.  To register for the event and for further information, please contact Leia Ursery at lursery@olsentraeger.com
