Our Process

Our experienced lawyers have established a clear estate planning process to make it easier for you to focus on all the necessary details. After receiving the completed questionnaire, we meet with you for a first consultation to follow up on any questions we have for you and hear your desires. They will write a first draft for your review. Then the final draft will be made for you to sign. We can assist with any of the work involved including setting up trusts, transferring titles, and documenting beneficiaries.
