Estate Planning

An estate plan is essentially a collection of legal documents that “spells out” your direction to your agent on how to take care of you should you become incapacitated, and how to distribute your “stuff” on the event of your passing. Tell me more…

What Makes Us Different?


Everyone’s estate is different, so we charge a flat rate based on the amount of work involved, not on your income.

This avoids the need for costly retainers and billable hours, and greatly minimizes the cost to help you achieve your goals.

Our flat rate includes: all recording, witness, & notary fees; document preparation costs; an embossed estate plan binder to store your documents; and PDF copies of your signed documents … everything.

We mean it when we say you are important to us

We always answer the phone unless we are with a client, but if you miss us, you can expect your call to be returned right away. This may sound like a simple thing, but we know the value of being able to reach us when it is important to you.

We are always available. You can contact us by email, telephone or text. You will have our office and cell phone numbers. We mean it when we say you are important to us and we want to make you feel special.


Legal documents can be difficult to understand when they are written in a language that is clearly English but filled with pages upon pages of “legalese”.

Our legal documents are different. They are written by attorneys in clear and wonderfully simple English so you can understand them to make appropriate decisions.

We simplify the process without compromising quality or legal details. We prefer documents that use “simplease” instead of “legalese”.

We make the entire estate planning process smooth and easy for you

Here is one example of how we go the extra mile for you. Included in your flat rate is our assistance with transferring your assets to the living trust. This final step is called “funding the trust”, and can be very confusing. If left undone, your trust will be incomplete. Incomplete trusts are legally compromised so your loved ones may be forced to go through the considerable expense and time of probate. Just for your information, it is standard for most estate planning services (including attorneys) to leave the important funding step for you to achieve on your own. We believe that the funding task will be stressful to you, and (if done incorrectly) may negatively impact the final resolution of your trust by triggering a probate, or making it necessary to involve the court. We make the entire estate planning process smooth and easy for you.

We never charge to talk!

Also, we are available to you. We answer our telephone and emails if you have any questions during the course of your estate planning project. You can even call us after your estate plan is finished. Just call or email us. We never charge to talk!
