Why Work With Our Law Firm?

Some estate planning attorneys try to take on as many people as quickly as possible and use a "one-size fits all" approach. Not only does the client have an impersonal experience, but this type of planning can cause unintended, negative results for the family in the future. When lawyers do not listen to the client's wishes or consider a family's unique circumstances, the result is often that documents, such as the will or trust, do not reflect what the family really wants. Additionally, these attorneys generally do not review or update the documents, so the plan quickly becomes outdated and does not meet the family's needs.

Even though a standard set of documents or even customized documents can cost you less up front, it is eventually more expensive for your loved ones. Additionally, you leave your loved ones at risk of having to deal with a lengthy, expensive and unnecessary probate process while they are grieving.

How We Are Different

Our firm is right for you if you desire a plan that will actually do what it is supposed to when your loved ones need it the most. If you just want a set of legal documents, you can use an online resource or a traditional estate planning attorney. The Law Offices of Steven M. Adler, PLLC can create and update a plan that will make the process easier for your loved ones regardless of what happens. We're different from other lawyers in a variety of ways, including:

  • Most of our fees are fixed and agreed to in advance to avoid surprises. You can select the level of planning and fee that best suits your family.
  • We keep you informed and create a comprehensive estate plan. Instead of just drafting a set of legal documents, we make sure your assets are properly owned, your kids are properly planned for, and everyone in your plan knows what their responsibilities will be should anything happen to you.
  • Our firm will review your plan at least every three years to make sure it is current with your life, your assets, your family and the current laws.
  • From ensuring that your assets are correctly titled to answering your questions, our team can make the planning process simpler for you and your loved ones.
  • We want to make sure that you never get taken advantage of and can help you make informed decisions regarding legal and financial issues like buying insurance, saving for college and retirement planning.
  • We focus on legacy planning and can transfer your intellectual, spiritual and human assets to your loved ones along with your personal wealth.
