Walter Whitaker

I am now starting my eighth year of on-line teaching and still receptive to your positive feedback and constructive criticism. I am a tolerant instructor, especially among those of you who are first-time on-line class students. I have "formally" taught at Santa Monica College and UCLA Extension in the distant past but have kept my teaching skills more or less fresh by conducting frequent workshop/seminars for client education and business promotion over the years. In the real world (and virtual) I am an asset protection counselor (over 40 years!). I am a principal in LAElderLaw (see which caters to the needs of seniors (estate and financial planning, asset protection, wills, trusts, conservatorships, litigation, advance health care directives, durable powers of attorney, medi-cal qualification for long term care benefits and avoidance of medi-cal recovery). We distinguish ourselves in that, besides financial and estate planning, we also litigate. I truly enjoy teaching and have designed a "real" class for UCLA Extension entitled "Practical Planning for Aging Adults and Their Caretakers". I have also recently taught "The Investment Process" for UC Irvine. Over the past 40 years, I have, practiced law, financial planning and asset protection and developed real estate. I have more experience than I know what to do with and hopefully can pass on some of it to you.
