My mission is simple: I help you protect your family and preserve your assets. I focus on estate planning and business planning. I also help people deal with the probate process in Connecticut, if a loved one has passed away.
I understand that you want to pass down your values, not just your assets, so I include tools to help you pass down your wisdom, life lessons, and experiences. lf you'd like, I can create a Lasting Legacy video as part of your estate plan. You sit down with me , a digital video camera, and with your spouse if you are married, and I ask you thought provoking questions which lead to discussions about values, wisdom, influences and philosophy. As a part of your estate plan I give you a DVD with the video of that conversation. You really can’t put a price tag on a treasured conversation like this.

I have known Attorney Basche for several years now and have thought highly enough of him to refer clients to him on matters that I do not handle. Attorney Basche is very knowledgeable about the law and the practice of law. He is extremely professional, ethical and has a great demeanor with his clients and other attorneys. I highly recommend that individuals looking for an estate planning attorney or attorneys looking to refer a client to someone for estate planning advice consult with Attorney Basche first.
