Estate Planning for many clients appears mysterious, when really it is quite simple. We have already set up a plan for your retirement, so we know how your assets will be used when you stop working. Estate Planning is simply planning for the point in time where you will leave those assets to heirs, or perhaps have difficulty in managing your affairs on your own, and need some assistance. Having a plan now can save countless hours, dollars, and stress for those that you care about most.
I have incorporated estate planning into my practice because I feel that it is an area where many clients have difficulty in finding someone they trust.
This is why I earned the CES [Certified Estate & Trust Specialist] designation. I felt it was important for us to gain the specialized knowledge that would enable clients to work with us to plan confidently. Less than 1% of the financial services community has this designation. As a holder of the CES credential we strive to live up to the Code of Ethics while providing affordable and comprehensive estate planning options.
