Cinderella's Trust Fund: Answering the "what-if" questions

Today, while signing his will in my office, a client remarked to me that a lot of good movies and novels were based on someone not leaving a proper will. His example was the movie "Sense and Sensibility". I mentioned that one of my favourite movies about legal disasters is "Bleak House". We ended up having a grand chat about stories of this kind.

A couple of years ago I wrote a book based on this idea, called "Cinderella's Trust Fund". In the book I take a number of well-known fairy tales and nursery rhymes and re-tell them from an estate lawyer's point of view. How different would things be if Cinderella's father had set up a trust for her? What if Little Red Riding Hood's grandmother lived in a care home rather than out in the woods where wolves could eat her? 

Check out this YouTube video about my book, which you can get on Amazon, at Lulu, or on our website. It's the most fun you can have with estate law:
