Suzanne Benvenuto Simpson

About me

Simpson Law, P.A. was founded in 2003 to provide a comprehensive, compassionate, and convenient way for busy parents and professionals to obtain vitally necessary estate planning services.  At your election, Suzanne will meet you in your own home, or at her office, during your non-working hours, to discuss the creation of your personal estate plan.


Simpson Law, P.A. provides clients with comprehensive estate planning services, including the preparation of various documents, strategies to reduce or eliminate estate tax liability, and recommendations regarding asset titling, life insurance, and beneficiary designations. The standard package of documents provided includes a Will, Power of Attorney for Health Care, Power of Attorney for Finances, and a Living Will.  Depending upon the client’s needs, trusts such as marital trusts, children’s trusts, and life insurance trusts are advised and prepared.  Suzanne also negotiates pre-marital agreements, employment contracts and prepares business succession plans for her clients.


Suzanne met her husband while hiking with the Washington Ski Club and stills enjoys family hikes, as well as biking, and international travel.

    Suzanne accepted a referral of a client of my firm who needed help with a probate of an estate in her jurisdiction. She met with the clients promptly, handled their matter efficiently and has made the clients feel very comfortable. I would not hesitate to refer other matters to her in the future.
