There are a number of complex and often intimidating issues that can affect the efficiency and effectiveness of planning for your future.  We take the time to meet discuss all of the important issues.

Our Process
Our Estate Planning Attorneys have multiple meeting with each of our clients to thoroughly address their needs.  During our first meeting, we discuss your goals, concerns, and any special considerations that must be considered.  We discuss what, if any, prior planning you have accomplished and whether you would like to replace or augment that plan.  At that time, we will also quote you a flat fee, which will not change unless you elect to deviate from the plan we establish.

At the initial meeting we will review certain pertinent documents to ensure your plan in comprehensive including:
  • All deeds to real estate
  • Retirement benefit statements
  • Bank Statements
  • Brokerage Statements
  • Life insurance and Annuity policies
Our experienced attorneys will then begin drafting all the necessary documents, wills, trusts, codicils  or business transactional documents.  During this time, we may call you if any clarification is needed to ensure we are living up to your goals in their entirety.

Finally, we meet a final time to sign and complete the documents.  However, this is not the end.  While some firms may see this as the end of your relationship, we go above and beyond.  Offering to keep our clients abreast of changes to the law that may affect their plan  We want to ensure that your business partners, children and other family members, and or friends are taken care of as you intend.
