"Working as an Estate Planning Legal Secretary."
There is a bundle of information to learn with Estate Planning. There are numerous documents, various types of trust documents, various types of Wills depending on the individual's assets, and many other documents. It is an area that is interesting to learn if you have no idea, such as myself, of planning ahead your future or for your elderly parents.
I'm not so sure if much money is to be made in this field. I had worked in litigation for most of my years. I am hoping to get an increase.
