We believe everyone has a legacy to protect. 

It is our mission to use our experience to protect your legacy from its greatest threats.  Whether that threat is from long-term care costs, in-laws, market loss, loss of income or unnecessary legal fees, court costs, insurance expenses, or taxes, we can give you peace of mind that your legacy will be protected. 

We combine our unique and time-proven legal, financial, and insurance techniques to protect what you have spent a lifetime building.  While proper legal, financial, and insurance techniques are powerful in their own right, when proper legal documents are combined with the right financial and insurance products, they become even more powerful.
