BACK Beginning with the initial conference and continuing through your second meeting, we explore more deeply what goals are most important to you and what concerns or obstacles may currently stand in the way of achieving those goals. This conversation forms the basis of your estate plan strategies. We also review who should make decisions for you if you could no longer do so for yourself, which is an often neglected but vital element of estate planning. Finally, we discuss who might be the best parties to handle the various responsibilities necessary to carry out your final wishes and directions.

Program
BACK At your second meeting, we work together to design a Will-based or trust-based plan that meets your needs according to your goals and concerns, given your family and financial situation. There is no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” estate plan. Among other things, we consider the types of assets you own, how you own them, why you own them, and related tax consequences to fashion your individualized plan. We provide a fixed fee quote, so that you will know your investment amount for us to complete your planning before we move further in the process.

You will be invited to ask questions and provide comments about our drafts, after which we finalize your documents for signing.

BACK For Foundational Plan clients, we provide detailed recommendations about how assets should be titled and how beneficiaries should be designated. For Legacy Plan and Signature Plan clients, we not only provide those recommendations, but, as much as possible, we do all the required paperwork. This is another way that our unique process provides you with confidence, comfort, and clarity that your plan will actually work when and as intended. You will be able to rest assured that your legal team includes well-trained professionals who work with your financial firms, banks, and advisors to ensure that all your assets and estate plan documents are in alignment.

Program
BACK For trust-based plans, the fee you pay us includes one year in our Client Maintenance Program. This Program is designed to serve as a cost-effective way to ensure that your documents do not fall out of date with the ever-changing legal, tax, and financial world. The Program also works to keep your plan up to date with your family and financial situation. If and when you open a new account or acquire a new asset, our team will work with you to make sure that it is titled correctly and that beneficiaries are properly designated.
