Our Approach to Planning:


A Life Plan

The greatest benefit of proper planning for most families is in protecting them against the risk of incapacity. Proper planning designates someone to manage affairs in your absence for when you are still alive but unable to do it for yourself.

 

A Transfer Plan

There are many costs which can affect the value of your estate and what is left to your heirs. A proper plan minimizes those costs by avoiding probate, planning around taxes, and properly funding entities.

 

A Family Plan

For many families the greatest concern after their passing is in making sure that everyone still gets along. Proper planning should incentivize proper behavior, avoid conflicts, and pass on your values to future generations.
