Just Published – The Inheritor’s Guide 

Dear Friends,

I am delighted to announce the release of my second book, The Inheritor’s Guide: A Legal, Financial, and Emotional Guide for Adult Children Managing Their Parents’ Legacy. The Inheritor’s Guide is a manual for anyone who has lost a parent and wants to gain an understanding of the step-by-step process of transitioning wealth from one generation to the next.

My goal in writing this book was to create a practical overview of the steps associated with the management of the estate of a parent. Over the last few years, I have worked to build our probate and trust administration practice and helped many families navigate this journey. This direct experience allowed me to see where the issues arose, and the book was borne out of this involvement. Each family is unique and the issues that develop will vary based on many factors.

The loss of a loved one presents emotional issues, and I thought it was important to include some guidance on the emotions that may arise. Dr. Olga Tolscik, a psychiatrist and grief counselor, contributed valuable insights on how emotions play a role in the administration process, and she offers clear suggestions to deal with the emotional hurdles that can get in the way.

The Inheritor’s Guide is intended to be a practical and concise guide of the overall process and to keep everyone involved on the “same-page.” I hope that the book will help families have better experiences and provides the resources they need to manage the process.

Eckert Byrne’s mission is to create holistic estate plans, maintain them and be there to help loved ones with the estate administration process to ensure a family legacy. My hope is that the personal stories and knowledge shared in the book will help “keep the peace” between beneficiaries throughout the estate process and create a legacy of love not rancor.

The Inheritor’s Guide can be purchased on Amazon.

Please contact me directly if you would like a signed copy. I hope to have a book signing event this fall and am crossing my fingers that we can see each other in person!
