Deborah L. Jacobs

Want to hear about personal finance in plain English or use client education as a marketing tool? Ask lawyer, financial journalist and digital media maven Deborah L. Jacobs. Author of the bestselling consumer-oriented book, Estate Planning Smarts (now available in the fourth edition), Deborah deftly dishes up dollars and sense, and tackles the emotional issues too.

Her latest book, Four Seasons in a Day: Travel, Transitions and Letting Go of the Place We Call Home, tackles the subject of mortality, but with a different twist: financially easing into retirement and reminding us to make the most of the time we have left. The Wall Street Journal named it one of “the best books of 2017 about healthy aging.”

Deborah has conducted blockbuster Webinars, moderated teleconferences and held radio audiences rapt. Following her in-person appearances, listeners gather around her to chat. Some say they feel like they’re sitting at the kitchen table with a very knowledgeable, trusted friend.

These programs include a one-hour lecture, followed by a 15-minute Q&A. Each topic can be geared to consumers or advisers. Those for advisers will include practice-building strategies, and can qualify for continuing education credit.
