The Fight Over Dennis Hopper's Estate - The Importance of Detailed Planning

The fight for Dennis Hopper's $40 million estate is in full swing and started, many noted, before the actor was even buried. The probate battle centers on Hopper's eldest daughter, Marin, and his estranged wife, Victoria Duffy. Galen Hopper, the actor's seven-year-old daughter will likely be a focal point of Duffy's argument for a share of the property.

Advance Directives - For Yourself and Your Family

Advance Healthcare Directives are a very important, yet often overlooked, step in planning for your future.
