Our quality Estate Planning Portfolios are offered at reasonable flat rates.  Whether your estate is small or large, we will help you build the proper plan that is suitable to your needs.  An initial consultation will allow you to get to know the attorney and our firm and will provide you with general legal information, which is not the same as legal advice- the application of law to an individual's specific circumstances.

We will be pleased to provide legal advice on
your specific situation after you accept and sign
our attorney-client engagement agreement.
Consultations do not include a review of your
existing legal documents.
