We believe in personalized service for each and every client. Our approach is educational and proactive – we first determine each client’s individual needs, desires and values, and then tailor their plan to best fulfill their dreams. And all our work is done for a flat fee agreed to with our client before we begin the work – no surprises!
Once we have created your estate plan, you can have us review your plan every three years for no charge to make sure that, as your life, assets, and the law change, your estate plan stays current. Also in the three-year review we will go over your assets to make sure that all of them are held properly. We have four annual Family Wealth VIP Membership programs for clients who desire even more ongoing service. Whether you participate in one of our Family Wealth VIP Membership programs or not, once you are our client we stay in communication with you so that you can become aware of changes in the law and issues that might affect your life and your plan.
In addition to creating estate plans, we advise clients regarding pre- and postnuptial agreements; perform reviews of plans prepared by others and consult with clients to determine if their existing plan is up to date, fully funded, and meets their current needs; and handle all aspects of estate administration after the death of a loved one. For owners of closely held corporations, limited liability companies, and limited partnerships, we can help keep their records up to date so that they have the maximum protection from personal liability that their chosen entity structure can provide.
Our clients benefit from the care we offer the whole family from free estate checkups to basic planning documents for young adult children. Each one becomes part of our client family and will feel how much we care.
We represent all sorts of people throughout varying stages of their lives –
