Good Fences Make Good Neighbors.
(Thurstontalk.com - April 11, 2012)
Spring is a great time for outdoor projects, like replacing an old fence or putting up a new one. A new fence is a beautiful thing. It is also the greatest source of boundary disputes and ruined relationships with neighbors.

Are The Benefits Of A Living Trust Worth The Expense And Hassle Of Creating One?
(Thurstontalk.com - March 1, 2012)
Let’s start by getting clear on what a trust is. A trust is a written document where one person (the settlor) gives another person (the trustee) certain assets (money, real estate, vehicles – whatever) to manage for the benefit of another person (beneficiary). We use the word trust to refer to both the document that created the trust and also sometimes the accounts where trust funds are held.
Choosing the Right Contractor Makes All the Difference.
(Thurstontalk.com - February 17, 2012)
Whether you are dealing with storm damage or planning a house project, choosing the right contractor for your job is critical. Here are some tips based on my own experience and the experience of my clients over the years: 1. Get as clear as you can about the work you want done.

Do you prefer those downed tree branches to be cut up and taken away or chipped on site for use in your garden? Do you want to do some of the work yourself?

Do You Really Need a Will?
(Thurstontalk.com - February 9, 2012)
A Will (also called a Last Will and Testament) is a legal document that identifies who will manage your assets when you die and directs who you want to have your assets. What I mean by “assets” is all of your property – your home and other real estate, vehicles, bank, investment and retirement accounts, stocks and bonds, household furniture and furnishings and personal belongings. Did you know that state law will govern what happens to your assets if you don’t have a Will?
