We provide strategically tailored estate planning for clients based on their unique circumstances and needs.
We would ask that you complete our client questionnaire prior to our meeting. It asks for a family tree as well as information about your assets and their location. It will organize your information so that our meeting runs smoothly.
Please also bring any deeds, account statements, and current estate planning documents, including trusts and wills, in your possession.
You should be prepared to discuss any specific questions that you may have (it may help to write them down in advance). You should have a broad idea as to how you wish to distribute your assets upon your death. This information will largely dictate the rest of the meeting. I would also suggest that you identify an individual whom you trust to act as Executor. We may also discuss appointing an individual to serve as your agent with power of attorney, as well as someone to make medical treatment decisions for you if you can no longer do so.
Our meeting may take anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour which will largely depend on the extent of planning that you request.
Sometimes it may take more than one meeting or a follow up phone call to get all of the information required for proper planning.
We pride ourselves on our diligence when it comes to estate planning for clients. Our philosophy is to be as efficient as possible and we typically prepare all the necessary documents within one week. We also offer rush services (1-3 day) at our clients' behest.
We find that clients choose our office based on the following characteristics:
