Practice Areas: Estate Planning

We believe that successful estate planning results from a close and trusting working relationship between you and your attorney. Your initial estate planning consultation is complimentary. At your initial consultation we learn about your particular planning needs, goals, concerns, current planning (if any), the types of assets you own and how you own them, and the overall size of your estate. Only after educating ourselves about you are we in a position to educate you about the best options and strategies for the implementation of your estate plan.

Our Fees

We will normally quote a flat fee, usually at the conclusion of our initial estate planning consultation. It is important to us - and to you - that you know what the fee is and that you are comfortable with it. Fees are payable by check, usually in two installments.  Fees for funding assets depend on the number and type of assets.

Personalized Service

Bigger is not always best. Smaller, focused and personalized is usually better. As a "boutique" law practice, we offer our clients personal and individualized attention. Our staff is responsive to your individual circumstances, goals and questions. Our attorney spends considerable time with our clients - the kind of time and attention you would want any professional advisor to spend with you. You won’t be rushed in and out. You will receive attention and care.

Our membership in WealthCounsel, LLC, allows us to tap into an amazing wealth of knowledge in all areas of estate planning, assuring that your estate planning, no matter how complex, will be expertly handled.

Clients participating in our TEAM ProgramTM (Trust & Estate Assured Maintenance) receive ongoing/annual review and updating of their living trusts and trust funding to keep pace with legislative, tax code, and best practices changes. Participants enjoy more comprehensive services and may invite family members and guests to join them for vital estate planning education.
