What you can expect
Our estate planning process begins with your completion of our Estate Planning Questionnaire, which provides pertinent information regarding your family background and financial situation. With this information, along with a review of any existing estate planning documents that you may have, we prepare an analysis for you detailing what would happen to your minor children, if any, and to your assets if either you, your spouse, or both of you were to die in the immediate future. If you are unhappy with your current estate plan, we will work with you to make the necessary changes to suit your needs.
Through candid and confidential discussions, we learn about you, your goals and values, and how you would like to provide for your family. Only then can we create an estate plan that is tailored to meet your needs and achieve your goals. This estate plan can include a will, basic legal documents such as a power of attorney or health care directive, a trust, or other legal vehicles.
We recommend a review of your estate plan every 3-5 years since family and financial situations can change over time. In addition, we recommend a review of your estate plan sooner if you experience a life-changing event, such as the birth of a child, a divorce, the death of a family member, or a sudden and significant change in your financial status.
