I truly enjoy helping people plan for and journey through the later seasons of life. While I enjoy a good attorney joke (and there are lots of them rightfully earned by the profession), I consider it a true honor and privilege to get to know and serve so many good people during my 30 + years of practice.
When people ask me what type of law I practice, I say, “Happy Law”. To me, a great day at the office is hearing my clients’ stories (especially the funny ones) and sharing mine. My primary method of simplifying the complex is through stories (many of which are quite humorous) and illustrations (my arts and crafts time). The truth is that “getting old ain’t for wimps,” and so many of my clients have or will experience serious health challenges as part of the aging process and eventually the loss of a loved one, be it a parent, spouse, or child. Such seasons are not happy or fun, but extremely stressful, bewildering, discouraging, exhausting and tearful. Many of my clients have exemplified what the covenant “in sickness and in health, till death us do part” truly means.
We help good people plan for and journey through the later seasons of life. We guide our clients through the maze of complex legal and financial issues that accompany the inevitable aging process. Our clients experience peace of mind that comes from thorough planning accomplished in a friendly, compassionate and caring manner. The complex becomes simple through stories and real life illustrations – many of which are quite humorous.
Traditionally, estate planning focuses on various legal documents to answer the question of, “What happens to my property when I die?” While that is a very important question which must be answered, we believe the more critical question is, “What if I don’t die, but become seriously ill or incapacitated?” Herb faced that question many years ago at the age of 32 when he underwent surgery to remove a tumor from his brain. He understands first hand how scary and unsettling that question can be, but also how critical thorough preparation is for such a season.
In short, we believe estate planning is more about people than property or a stack of cookie-cutter documents.
