What we offer

An Estate Plan for Your Peace of Mind

We know you've worked hard for what you have. And we're here to make sure it goes where you want it to go.

An Estate Plan that Saves you Money

Many traditional estate planning law firms charge upwards of $2,500 to create a comprehensive estate package, and that's just for the first part of a simple will. Moreover, these firms often overprice the rest of what they offer, such as trusts and other documents. We do things differently.

An Estate Plan for Your Legacy

Leaving your property up to the courts to decide how it should be distributed can lead to a process taking 9 months to 2 years. If a will is in place, there would be already a plan of your doing for when you pass away. 

We make it easy to get everything you need done, all in one place. We offer comprehensive estate packages that include wills, trusts, and power of attorney. And if you don’t see what you want, we can customize a package just for you!
