Our firm limits our practice to an area of law that we like to call Legacy law.
Legacy Law begins with estate planning and administration. But it involves much more. It includes all of the issues about how you own your wealth, how you can preserve your family's wealth for your needs and the needs of your family, and how you can control the transfer of your family's wealth to your chosen family members.
As your Legacy Law counselor, we can help you plan your estate, plan for long term care and apply for Medicaid assistance with its cost, create special needs trusts for disabled family members, administer trusts and estates after a death, and minimize your estate and gift taxes.
As your Legacy Law Counselor, we focus on your family and your finances, and we help you develop the plans and documents you need to preserve your family's wealth, and transfer it to the chosen members of your family.
Above all else, we help you put your money where your heart is.
