From the Foreword by Rubén F. Balane, Ateneo Law School professor:
“Walking with Pedro through his multifarious, protean life as single, as married, and as widower, Atty. Rotor-Hilado explains to the reader the various possible kinds of heirs he might have and the various options he may choose to dispose of his estate. He may, of course, choose to leave this world without a will. To whom, then, will his properties go? Or he may decide to make a will. How much, then, can he give away?
“Through this marvelous and informative book, Atty. Rotor-Hilado, using her lawyer’s knowledge and couching it in terms that are free of the ponderousness of legalese, guides the reader who is a non-lawyer to an adequate acquaintance with the law of succession—adequate, that is, as a basis for deciding to whom and in what amounts his estate should go when he himself goes . . .
“I invite the reader, across the broad band of the economic spectrum, whether he owns a fortune or a piece of real estate the size of a flower pot, to embark on this information-filled journey through successional law.”
