Thriller Author’s Estate Leads to Family Battle

It is not enough to have your estate planning documents up to date. You also need to communicate your wishes and intent to your heirs during your lifetime.

The international thriller author Tom Clancy left his family an $86 million estate including a minority share in the Baltimore Orioles, a rare World War II tank, and – unintentionally – a family feud. Because Clancy didn’t make his wishes clear to his heirs, his family battled over taxes on his estate. We’re here to help you avoid family fall-outs like that of the Clancys.
