Couple’s Trust Package
Before starting any new relationship, it is important to get to know one another. It is our goal to ensure you are comfortable with us both personally and professionally. At your no cost educational meeting, we will discuss estate planning in general, available options, and how to best accomplish your wishes and needs. If at the end of your educational meeting you decide to move forward, we will schedule your planning meeting and provide a client questionnaire to be completed and returned prior to. This will assist us when discussing particulars at your planning meeting. We will send you a detailed engagement letter outlining the scope of work and suggested schedule.
“We strive to go above and beyond the norm. Not only do our clients receive highly detailed and comprehensive work product, but also important ancillary documents not otherwise found in the ‘run of the mill’ plans. Not all estate plans are created equal, and we take pride in our added-value approach.” – Attorney Joseph C. Jones
