The Right Price

We believe that superior client service doesn’t have to break the bank. By distributing tasks among staff members according to client needs and efficiently handling each individual client’s needs, we are able to provide cost-effective, yet high quality service for all your wealth management and planning needs.

We also provide transparent and intuitive flat fee pricing, which can be customized to the individual needs of each client. The fee schedule has been developed based on our attorney’s years of experience and knowledge of the approximate number of hours required to complete each service. Should a client’s individual circumstances require significant customization, the fee schedule may not apply. In such situations, a Wealth Planning Team Member will be happy to provide a quote during the first meeting, which will be charged at the hourly rate for the corresponding attorney. Under certain circumstances, we may be able to offer a reduced hourly rate for the initial meeting or waive it altogether. If a client desires, the client may be charged on an hourly basis.
