We are building relationships, not documents. For that reason, we help you organize your financial life and legacy goals before we get hired, ensuring our work is on the full picture of what matters most.
The assets most often lost between generations are intangible. Our personalized process ensures everything from your values to your voice are protected during your life and for generations to come.
Every estate plan is unique, driven by your personal relationships and risk factors. We work with you to map out the most likely scenarios for you, and plan for each as life changes.
You will know what you pay and what you are paying for at every step of our relationship. We offer a “no surprise” promise, ensuring transparency so we stay on the same side of the table, every step of the way.
The majority of estate plans are left unfinished and unsigned. We help you mitigate the biggest risk in legacy planning – procrastination – by making it easy to make decisions and solidify legal documents as they are needed.
One-and-done estate plans are a recipe for failure. We build lifetime relationships of trust with you so that your financial and legal decision making evolves at the speed of life, elevating meaning and purpose in every season.
