Our Mission

  • We work with qualified financial, legal, and tax professionals who understand the importance of estate planning.
  • We train them to work together as a team to bring to every client a custom tailored estate plan.
  • We stress that every estate plan should be designed to preserve, protect, and pass on that individual's estate to whom they want, when they want, and how they want.
  • We think each client should also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing their estate will be managed during their lifetime as they have directed, should they ever become incapacitated.
  • We believe every American adult deserves an estate plan that allows these goals to be accomplished in the most efficient manner available under the law, and that minimizes costs both now and in the future.
