Topics ranged from how to set one up, to how to make sure the people you want to inherit y our possessions actually end up receiving it once your gone.

Judge Stephenson says this information is vital for everyone to know about.

"When you talk about families. A lot things can go wrong, tough things that you can't predict, so you want to take away any uncertainty that you can," said Judge Stephenson.

Judge Stephenson says she was glad to see such a great turnout, and hopes everyone came away with some useful information.
