Your Family's Future:  Transparent. 

We are Estate Planning Attorneys who help families preserve their wealth and pass along their legacies to loved ones. With 15 years experience discovering and litigating against people's assets, there are few better equipped to protect yours. 

We don't prepare one-size-fits-all boilerplate wills & trusts because we recognize that every estate and every client's needs are different.  Instead, every plan is customized to maximize client's protection of assets while minimizing risk of exposure to excessive estate tax.  Our goal is to keep clients' loved ones out of court and out of conflict.

We quote clients with a one time flat fee based on their specific needs BEFORE they retain us.

My go-to for special needs trusts
Lisa is great at explaining and setting up special needs trusts and supplemental needs trusts when I have clients who need them. As an injury attorney, my clients' settlements can often affect their eligibility for government benefits. But with Lisa's help, we can protect both their settlements as well as their government aid!

Knowledgeable and dependable
Lisa has been our go to attorney for many years and has consistently provided top tier services. Not to sound cliché, but she is a highly self-motivated "go-getter" who thinks quickly on her feet and always has our best interests in mind. Lisa is pleasant to work with and has continuously exceeded our expectations time and time again. We have recommended her services to others in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

Caring, skilled lawyer
Ms. Haster did a wonderful job helping with a complicated legal issue regarding a trust for my mother. She did the necessary research to correctly file the court proceedings as it was not a typical situation. She is also very knowledgeable in her practice and kept us well informed throughout the process and at the same time, she was very sensitive to the situation. I highly recommend her!

Total pushover
Second lawyer we met with. Sounded like she would do things that were not totally on the level if we wanted. The whole thing made me very uncomfortable. We decided to go with outer first lawyer.
