Benefits of Proactive Planning
Planning for tomorrow is a crucial step in securing your and your loved ones' future. Proactive, strategic planning functions to protect your assets, ensure your healthcare wishes are honored, and provide for your family's well-being. Fortunately, the benefits of proactive planning greatly outweigh the costs of such planning. Whether you're considering drafting a will, establishing a trust, or preparing for long-term care, we are here to guide you through every step. By planning today, you can avoid potential legal complications, minimize taxes, and have peace of mind knowing that your affairs are in order for whatever the future holds.

Provide

Ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes, and that your family's future is secure.

Planning allows you to control the distribution of your assets so that you can provide for heirs, minimize family conflict, and avoid unnecessary court proceedings.  Without advance planning, you are leaving these critical decisions in the hands of others.  

Preserve

Maximize the transfer of your assets through strategic planning.

The transfer of assets from a grantor to a beneficiary may trigger tax consequences. But, if you implement strategies to minimize such potential tax liability, your chosen beneficiaries will have more of your assets to preserve.

Progress

Give the next generation clear guidance on family priorities paired with a solid financial foundation.

Your legacy is more than just your assets. Your values and your priorities are key parts of your legacy. Planning allows you to help shape the future of your family, and leave a mark that will stand the test of time.

Permit

Designate only the individuals you trust to manage your healthcare decisions.

If incapacity occurs, you don't want to leave your healthcare decisions in the hands of someone you don't know or trust. Your well-being is too important. Memorialize your healthcare decisions so that only trusted individuals are permitted to make decisions on your behalf.

Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.

Our team takes the time to listen, educate, and empower you to make informed decisions that protect your legacy and your loved ones. When you work with us, you can trust that your needs come first, every step of the way.

CONVENIENT

Our team answers the phone and responds to web chats 24x7. We are primarily a virtual law practice, so we conduct the majority of our client meetings via videoconference. However, when necessary, we are available to meet with our clients in person, and will travel to their homes if needed. Furthermore, we offer early morning, evening, and weekend appointments for consultations. This approach allows you increased flexibility when working with us.

COMFORTING

We are here to help you find the peace that you've been missing. When you take time to plan for the future, you become better prepared to face the future. It's quite natural to experience some measure of anxiety when seeking legal counsel. We take the time to explain complex topics to you in a way that is easy for our clients to understand, and with no judgment. Our responsibility to provide competent, ethical counsel is at the forefront of all we do, and we are deeply committed to giving our clients the knowledge and perspective necessary to make wise, informed decisions.

COST-EFFECTIVE

Our experience allows us to efficiently handle the representation in a timely manner, thus saving you time and money. We primarily bill for our services using transparent, flat fees that have been agreed to upfront, and are payable upon completion of the agreed scope of representation. Depending on a client's financial situation, we may extend an offer of a payment plan so as to allow a client to pay for the cost of our services over a reasonable, mutually-agreed period of time. Most importantly, our services often allow our clients to reap considerable savings when contrasted with the costs of inaction.

COLLABORATIVE

We understand that comprehensive estate planning often requires a multidisciplinary approach. We work in close collaboration with other financial professionals (such as CPAs, financial planners, wealth managers, insurance brokers, and real estate agents) to ensure a cohesive and well-rounded strategy for our clients. By integrating the expertise of these professionals, we can address all aspects of your financial and estate planning needs, providing you with a seamless and coordinated plan that maximizes your assets, minimizes tax liabilities, and secures your financial future.

CANDID

Our goal is to build strong, honest relationships that serve your best interests and uphold the highest standards of legal practice. We provide sound, ethical legal advice even when it may not align with a client’s initial desires. We believe that honesty and integrity are fundamental to effective legal counsel, and we are committed to guiding you with transparency and professionalism. Additionally, we take the time to discern whether there is a mutual fit before any attorney-client relationship is established, understanding that the best outcomes are achieved when there is trust and alignment between both parties.
