How It Works



At the first appointment, you will talk with an attorney who will collect information, discuss your goals, and give you options for your particular case.


After 2 to 3 weeks, you will again meet with the attorney to review and likely sign your estate planning and business related documents.


In 2 to 3 weeks, you’ll have what is likely your last face-to-face appointment to receive the original and copies of your documents and begin retitling your possessions and beneficiaries, depending on whether you opted for a Will or a Trust.



Upon a major event or for annual business planning, it’s recommended to contact the attorney for a brief review to ensure your current estate plan and business goals remain relevant to any changes that may have occurred and all legal requirements are being met.
