What To Expect

The Attorney

You won't be handed off to a legal assistant for a "simple will"  or subjected to lectures to scare you or sell you complex tax avoidance tools you don't need. 

However, you will have some work to do! 

  • You will be asked to complete a detailed asset list (any estate planning lawyer will need this). 
  • You will be asked to think about a few uncomfortable "what if" scenarios.
  • You will be asked to realistically evaluate who in your family/friends are emotionally strong enough to honor your wishes and organized enough to handle details.

Joan will discuss with you the ins and outs of estate planning, the probate process, life planning and death planning to arrive at customized recommendations for you.  If you decide to proceed within 30 days  the initial consult fee is applied to your estate package fee.  If not, you have no further commitment.
