1. Set up a time to chat

In our first meeting, we’ll talk about your needs and goals for your estate planning or discuss your needs as the personal representative in probate proceedings.

2. Attend a planning meeting

We’ll make planning easy as we know what questions to ask, what contingencies to plan for, and how to address even complicated situations.

3. Review and sign documents

After we compile your documents, we’ll meet again to review them with you, making sure you understand everything and that we’ve covered all the bases.
