If you are looking to get your will/trust done, look no further. Dave did an excellent job answering any questions I had with my estate planning. Very courteous and proficient in his field. In addition, he was very efficient and had my will completed sooner than I anticipated. Would highly recommend him.

David did an excellent job with my estate plan. Planning how I would take care of my family in case I were gone was a scary proposition for me, but he helped me feel confident in my choices and was conscientious in all matters. He was able to explain concepts that were foreign to me in a way that I could understand. Overall, I felt like he had my best interests at heart in all decisions and cared most about creating a plan and experience that I was comfortable with.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We charge a flat rate. No hourly billing or unexpected costs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Step 1 – Initial consultation -We discuss the client's life, family, financial situation, and estate planning goals. -An estate planning client doesn't need to bring anything. Financial documents and summaries of assets can be helpful. Still, we tell clients not to worry if those things aren't readily available. Step 2 – Drafting of documents (performed by your attorney) -Once we have determined the legal instruments that would best achieve the client's goals, we prepare the initial drafts. -We send copies of these drafts to the client for their approval. -We discuss any matters the client needed more time to consider. We also make any desired tweaks or changes. Step 3 – Signing appointment -We set a time for the client to come in and sign their estate planning documents. -Missouri requires this be done in the presence of 2 witnesses (at least 18 years of age and not interested beneficiaries), which we provide. -The signing is witnessed and certified by a notary (which we provide). Step 4 – Storing your documents -Clients should store their Will, Trust, Power of Attorney, or other estate planning documents in a safe location. -As a policy, our firm keeps copies of all documents for at least five years. Step 5 – Periodic review -One should periodically review their documents with an attorney and update them as needed. -We recommend every 3-5 years or any time they experience a significant life change (marriage, divorce, acquisition of substantial property, etc.).

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a graduate of Saint Louis University School of Law, a licensed member of the Missouri Bar, and I have a law practice dedicated to estate planning (about 90% of cases).
