Life and Estate Planning is about determining your path through both life and death.  By preparing we can control a small piece of our future.  We can protect ourselves by ensuring that our wishes are documented and our voice preserved, even during a medical or mental incapacity.  We can protect those we love and who depend on us by evaluating their needs and planning our estate, no matter the size to best serve those needs.  Whether that is naming a guardian, protecting assets from indiscreet waste, or providing them with the tools they need to provide for our care, there is a plan that will make it easier.  Finally we can protect our assets to most effectively provide for our care, and minimize the effects of taxes after we are gone.  

 

In order to best serve my clients, I focus on relationship building rather than a short-term sale.  The more I know and understand my client, the better I can tailor an estate plan to suit their needs.  By building that relationship, clients feel comfortable returning to me as their lives and estate planning needs change. 

 

My goal is to educate and empower my clients to make the plan that works for them now and help them re-evaluate the plan as life changes around us all.

Trust
Kirsten did a wonderful job with our trust. The whole process can be confusing and intimidating but Kirsten walked us through everything and was extremely accommodating with our busy schedule. She helped us understand exactly what we were doing every step of the way. Her process is convenient and she was always very quick to respond when I emailed her. We highly recommend Kirsten for your estate planning needs.

Kirsten Review
Kirsten was very professional and thorough; she was always prompt for appointments; she made good suggestions on how to accomplish our goals, while leaving us to make our own decisions; her work product was excellent, both substantively and grammatically.

Excellent attorney for your estate planning and legal needs
I have worked with Kirsten on my estate plan and have referred several friends to her and we have all been very pleased with her skills, knowledge and ability to turn what for many seems like a daunting task into a positive, efficient experience.

Thumbs up for Kirsten!
Kirsten worked with us on our estate planning, establishment of a trust for myself and for my partner. She is personable, proactive and really helped us to become aware of different options and possibilities. She was recommended to us by a friend and we have been very well satisfied with her work for us. We have referred several of our friends to her for legal assistance and all report that they were well served.

estate planning
Thorough review and consultation for my last will & testament as well as our family trust. Had to update our trust after 10 years and was reminded by Kirsten that it was time to do so. She made it as easy as possible.

Kristen is and excellent lawyer. She assisted us in creating our will and estate plan. She was knowledgeable of both Fed. and State laws and was always quite willing to share this knowledge. If I ever need legal assistance, she would definitely be my first option.

Will and Trust
Very pleased with the work Kirsten performed in setting up our trust. She was knowledgeable and very thorough. She helped with my closing my mothers trust and referred me to other lawyers for work beyond her expertise. I would use and refer her to others.

Knowledgeable and Thorough
Kirsten was able to quickly review my situation and recommend products that provided the best protection for me and my family. Our unusual circumstance required knowledge and understanding of a variety of potential situations. I could not be more pleased with our completed documents, the process, and Kirsten's sincere dedication to our best interest. Highly recommend.

Estate
Ms. Schroeder Larsen did an outstanding job with a family member's estate. In my role as personal representative, she guided me through every step, answered my questions in a timely manner, and filed materials with the court promptly and efficiently. Her rates were very reasonable. I would recommend her highly!

Easy to work with, patient with all our questions
Kirsten was easy to work with. She very patiently answered our many questions about wills and legal terminology. When we asked questions to which she did not have an immediate answer she was great about finding out and getting back to us in a timely fashion. Kirsten made what is a not-fun process (drawing up wills, planning for end-of-life stuff) as painless as possible.
