We don’t bill on an hourly basisWe’ll always agree to a specific fee in advance of our work together, so you’ll never have any surprises about what something will cost you. We know that you’ll need to continue communicating with us during your lifetime about changes to your plan, as well as changes to your life and assets. We will communicate with you regularly about changes in the law. In fact, you can expect to hear from us often in our email newsletter.
We do not leave the ownership of your assets to chanceWe work with you to ensure your assets are properly titled in the name of the trust, and we take responsibility to supervise the funding. We work through an established process to ensure that your existing assets remain titled correctly, and newly acquired assets are titled properly. With client assistance, we utilize a sophisticated software program that allows us to fund your living trust, track the funding process to completion, and verify to you that it is done.
We value ongoing maintenance and education to our clientsSince everything constantly changes, you cannot expect a plan to accomplish what it was intended to accomplish if it is never updated. The costs of failing to update are typically far greater than the costs of keeping plans current. It’s not the documents that are really the focus of our relationship. They’re the byproduct of the relationship. The focus of the relationship is helping you to make the best legal decisions for your family both now and throughout your future, and then having that peace of mind of knowing that someone is here for your family when something happens. Because I’m a business owner too, I am able to bring the knowing and awareness that the work we do here isn’t really about you. It’s about your family, your team, and your clients. You are here to make things the best they can be for yourself and the people you love the most. Every client I work with is a hero of a unique story. I help my clients to carry over their life values successfully to future generations by setting specific guidelines on how money is invested, children are cared for, and philosophies are preserved. My goal is to make sure those guidelines work well throughout their lifetime by maintaining a long-term relationship. I do that by making it easy for my clients to communicate with me without charging an hourly fee, and put my whole team in place to support my clients.
