Introducing an EPEL RA: Joe Zurschmiede
Joe ZurschmiedeMy name is Joe Zurschmiede and I am a 2L research assistant for the Estate Planning and Elder Law Program.

My interest in EPEL stems from both of my grandparents dying intestate and the terrible experience my family had with the probate process. I want to help individuals plan for the future so they don’t have to go through what my family did. Additionally, I graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in finance, with a primary focus on investments and real estate. I’m very interested in different investment strategies individuals can use to plan for retirement and other financial goals. My prior education gave me a passion to help others plan for the future, as well as plan for after death.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with family and sporting events. Even though the past few years hasn’t been so good, I like to watch the Cincinnati Reds any chance I get.

I am looking forward to being a part for EPEL. I know this will be a great experience to learn and to help many people.
