  • Life Testaments (sometimes called Ethical Wills) play a very important part in conveying to loved ones our values, dreams, and our life's foundations. Dan Kapsak has prepared an in-office conversation and workbook to assist clients to begin the exploration of one's values and foundations so they may convey them in words, photos, or otherwise. Please feel free to contact Dan to schedule a time to begin this exciting, challenging, and ultimately rewarding process.
