Protect What You Have Built & Leave a Lasting Legacy


Life & Legacy Planning

 A Cut Above Traditional Estate Planning

Unlike a traditional estate plan that prepares for your death, a Life and Legacy plan is a plan for your life. A Life and Legacy plan will allow you to:

  • Protect your assets should you become ill or incapacitated

  • Pre-decide medical treatment

  • Determine who will make health care decisions

  • Communicate your wishes to your loved ones

  • Provide for loved ones should you become incapacitated or die

  • Leave a lasting legacy

  • In most cases avoid or reduce probate costs
