Before Hiring an Estate Planning Lawyer Understand The Difference

Traditional estate planning law firms take the “one-size-fits-all” approach when preparing estate paperwork. They specifically choose to sell estate paperwork instead of estate plans. If you are looking for estate paperwork, you should consider LegalZoom for a “one-size-fits-all” legal document. The reality of the situation is that you and your family aren’t like everyone else. And those “one-size-fits-all” approaches often create unintended results and even unintended legal nightmares.

When lawyers fail or refuse to stop, listen, and consider a family’s personal and individualized circumstance, the results can be disastrous. And typically, the kind of lawyer that will let a client sign this type of “one-size-fits-all” paperwork is the same kind of lawyer that would fail to appreciate that families change, grow, and experience changes in circumstances that may warrant reviewing or updating an estate plan. So, even though one might pay less for some estate paperwork, its critical to understand that you may be creating a much more expensive problem in the future. Additionally, poor planning may leave you or your family to deal with expensive and unnecessary legal proceedings during their time of grief.

Why Work With Us?

You don’t get to choose your family, but you do get to chose your lawyer…

Communication and Trust

We are committed to providing our clients with the highest possible quality legal representation at an agreeable and reasonable cost. We strive to fulfill this commitment to ensure our clients future success and building lasting relationships founded on clear communication and mutual trust.

Clear and Honest

We believe that every successful attorney-client relationship is dependent on honest, clear and responsive communication. We strive to meet our clients’ needs by consistent and regular communication as well as anticipating their legal needs.

Exceptional Representation

Our goal is to offer and provide exceptional legal counsel to clients. In an effort to ensure that we respond to our client’s legal needs, we have attorneys to only service specific industries and fields of law. By offering industry specific lawyers and legal teams, we can ensure that our clients’ most complicated legal needs are met with a sophisticated and responsive strategy.

The Importance of Listening

At Pierce Law Group, we understand the importance of listening to our clients. In fact, we believe that there is a difference between an estate plan (the thing we design after speaking and examining the client’s individual situation) and estate paperwork (the actual paper that memorializes the plan). It is our sincere belief that a successful estate plan requires an attorney to be able to appreciate the inner workings of a family and their assets. Whether your grandchild has a disability or your son is a recovering addict, your family is, with all its knocks and edges, the most important part of a successful estate plan.

You may wish to work with us if you desire to (1) prepare a plan that your family needs; (2) keep your family out of costly legal disputes, and (3) put your assets where you intend them, then Pierce Law Group may be the right fit for you.

Here are Some of the Ways We Are Different From Most Other Estate Planning Lawyers

    1. All of our fees are fixed and agreed to in advance, so there are no surprises. At our initial meeting, you will choose the level of planning and fee that works best for your family, so there will never be any surprises.
    2. We keep you informed and make sure your plan works. We don’t just prepare a set of legal documents for you and send you on your way. We make sure your assets are owned in the right way, we make sure your kids’ well-being is properly planned for, we ensure everyone you’ve named in your plan knows what to do if anything happens to you. And, we make sure that none of your assets become part of the $58 Billion of unclaimed assets across the United States.
    3. We review your plan at least every 3 years and annually through our Estate Planning Membership program. We foster a lifetime, ongoing relationship with our clients. Throughout your life, things change. You change; your assets change; your family changes; the law will definitely change. When planning with us, your plan will keep up with those changes.
    4. We have a whole team in place to answer your questions and to make the planning process incredibly easy and painless for you and your family. We have a process for helping you make sure that your assets are titled in the right way, both now and over your lifetime.
    5. We help you get your legal and financial house in order by helping you make smart choices about things like buying insurance, saving for college, and retirement planning so you never spend more than you have to or get taken advantage of by unscrupulous salespeople.
    6. Legacy Planning. We believe that planning is about much more than just the transfer of your financial wealth. With all of our plans, we include a process to help you transfer your most important personal wealth to your loved ones, including your intellectual, spiritual and human assets – who you are and what’s important to you.

Before you engage an estate planning lawyer to help you plan for the well‐being of your money, your family, and your life, there are questions you need to ask. You need to ensure that the estate plan you put in place will really work when your family needs it and won’t end up just a pile of worthless paper after you are gone.
