Our Counsel Does Not Lead Your Decisions — It Reflects Your Wishes

The goal of an attorney is to not tell you what to do with your estate plan, but rather help you decide how you want to pass along your assets. Instead, our firm focuses on gaining a complete understanding of your situation and goals, and then using our knowledge and experience to guide you.

For example, we can explain the legal and tax consequences of any actions you are considering. We can also work with you, over time, to update your estate plan to match changes in the law, or your own wishes. This way, when it comes time to settle your plan, it will be much easier and less expensive for your family because you have made the necessary adjustments.

When it comes to planning your estate, you are the expert in your own situation. We are simply here to make sure that your plan is clearly written, within the law and properly documented.

It is never to early to start planning your future. Contact us at 225-295-5654 or reach us online.
