University of Maryland Legal Specialist Paul Goeringer Featured in the News
Featured in The Delmarva Farmer, Paul Goeringer, a research associate and extension legal specialist at the University of Maryland, spoke in an article about estate planning.
“The goal is to get producers and families to talk about estate planning and transition planning earlier, before problems develop,” said Goeringer. “Nobody likes to talk about death.”
Approximately 55 percent of the United States population does not have a will, according to LexisNexis.
“It [the article] has good information to get people to start learning about this process,” said Goeringer.
The article,“While often difficult, estate planning crucial to farm, land transition,” was written by Sean Clougherty. It can be read on the AmericanFarm.com website.
Goeringer is also a part of workshops offered throughout the state of Maryland about estate planning. The workshops are hosted by the UMD Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, the Agriculture Law Education Initiative, and University of Maryland Extension. The next workshop will be April 18 in Leonardtown, Maryland.
