About Our Fees

Attorney Fees Are Important to You

The subject of attorney fees is one we know is important to you. We are very up-front with you on that subject. Keep in mind that in estate planning, one size does not fit all people or family situation. Your situation is personal and unique to you. We offer a free, first consultation.

Our Work Involves More Than Preparing Documents

Estate planning, living trusts, wills, Veteran and Medicaid benefits planning, and special needs planning are very personal and individualized processes. Your financial future, and that of your loved ones, will be directly and often dramatically impacted by how carefully the planning you and your attorney advisor is done. No two clients, and therefore no two plans, are ever alike. Our work always involves much more than preparing documents. We need to partner with and guide you in seeing to it that your plan doesn’t just “look good on paper.” We will help to make sure that it “works in real life.” That is, your life and those of your loved ones.

We First Listen and Learn

In order to develop your plan, we first Listen and Learn – about your current circumstances, the health care challenges you may be facing now or in the future, your individual preferences, your family circumstances, your planning goals, and your financial situation. Doing so will enable us to determine how best we can help you, how much of your life savings the planning can help you protect, and what type of work we will employ to accomplish your stated goals.

Not Wise to "Cut Corners"

Are we “the cheapest lawyers around?” No, and we don’t claim or try to be. After all, your life savings are at stake. We don’t think it’s wise to “cut corners” under circumstances in which how well, and how thoroughly, the planning is done can have a financial impact that can far, far exceed the investment you make in the planning. For example, is it a wise choice to spend an extra $1,000 on planning done in a way that will protect an extra $50,000 or even $500,000 or more, of your life savings? We think so, and we hope you will share that belief. When it comes to protecting your life savings, it’s really important to cover all the details.

We Offer Exceptional Value

Do we offer exceptional value? Yes we do. We pride ourselves in achieving excellent results for our clients. We are not a general practice firm. Elder law and estate planning are what we do, all we do. In many situations, the value of the assets we’re able to help our clients protect is more than ten times the amount they invest in our fees. How many other investments can offer you a 1,000% or higher rate of return?

95% of Prospective Clients Hire Us

We believe it’s worth mentioning that 95% of the prospective clients who meet with us choose to hire us. We think that’s a good indication that, after people learn what our planning can help them to accomplish, and see that we have the knowledge, experience and confidence it takes to produce excellent results, they’re convinced that our fees are fair and reasonable, and that they represent a good value and investment.
