What our readers are saying

September 14, 2017

At People’s Law School, we are committed to providing you with information about the law that is clear, accurate and up to date. Information you can use on practical problems most of us encounter one time or another. Our readers trust us to get it right. We thought we’d share with you some of their recent comments about our wills and estates publications.

Being an Executor

"I found it very complete; I appreciated the easy-to-understand language and explanations. Thank you :-)"

"Thank you for your booklets. They have been a great help to settle an estate. Don't know where I could have found such easy to understand material."

"Very helpful and laid out in a logical, workable manner. The best I have found to date."

Preparing Your Will

"Thank you for this clear and concise little booklet. It was very useful."

"I have also read When I'm 64: Benefits for Seniors, Power of Attorney, and Being an Executor. These booklets are written in simple and easy to understand language. As an immigrant senior, I really appreciate your work. A job well done. Thank you."

A Death in Your Family

"Very informative during a time of need — thank you. Please keep this info up-to-date."

All of this information can now also be found on our website in the Everyday Legal Problems section under wills & estates, in an easy-to-use layout that is mobile-friendly.
