  • Discuss your payment options.

 

In addition to providing you with legal information, another objective of our Estate Planning consultation is to determine whether or not you and our firm are a good fit for each other.  There are many reasons why we might decide not to represent you, but if we make such a decision, it should never be taken personally. 

 

If we decide you are a good fit for us and you feel likewise, we will discuss your payment options, decide on a payment plan, and execute a lawyer-Client Agreement.  If you would like to take advantage of one of our affordable payment plans, you will need to bring photo identification, your last two check stubs, and a debit or credit card with you to your consultation. The payments for your lawyer fees will be automatically drafted from the debit or credit card you provide in accordance with the payment plan you choose. 

 

After your Estate Planning consultation, you will receive a client packet that will provide you with more information about the Estate Planning process and what you can expect going forward.
