We are a full service estate planning law firm. We create estate plans with the understanding that estate planning is a process designed to improve the quality of life for you and your loved ones. You are empowered by Estate Planning to control how your assets are used in the event of an illness, as well as how your assets are to be passed onto future generations. More importantly, a proper estate plan can protect you personally, when you are unable to make decisions for yourself. We design our estate plans to succeed beyond what is common in today’s marketplace.
We provide a higher level of client support than provided by most legal firms. Together we’ll create an estate plan that best fulfills your dreams and goals. We’ll help you arrange your affairs in a way that is both personally satisfying and that meets your unique objectives. All while accomplishing substantial savings for your family in the long run.
We educate financial advisors, insurance professionals, bank branch managers, and anyone who is interested in learning about how estate planning can help their families and those who they care about. Our workshops will inform you about estate planning and our process. Our agreement is that you educate us about your family and we’ll educate you about the law and estate planning.
We believe in a team approach, working collaboratively with you and your other professional advisors. We’ll work with your financial advisor and accountant to ensure your estate plan works and is suitable for your situation.
We use the latest estate planning techniques and strategies, together with tried-and-true tools, such as revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts, cottage trusts, life insurance trusts, testamentary trusts, gun trusts, durable powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, living wills (end of life directives), and last wills, just to name a few. We’ll work with you to determine the best strategies and tools to use to custom design your estate plan.
We encourage clients to call us or email us with their questions or concerns.
