You’ve worked hard to get where you are today. Now, you want an attorney to protect what you’ve worked for: the people you love and the assets you own. The question is, how do you choose the right one? It’s a critical question, one that at first can seem overwhelming. The Internet and phone book list dozens, if not hundreds, of attorneys. Who is best qualified?

The first thing you need to know is that some lawyers are “generalists.” They practice in a wide range of areas. You wouldn’t go to a general practitioner for heart bypass surgery. Why would you choose someone who claims to be an estate planning attorney but also practices injury and bankruptcy law?

Another factor to consider is how long the attorney has practiced estate planning and wealth preservation. You might be surprised to learn that even attorneys who now focus on this area have not always done so. They simply do not have the experience necessary to provide you with the seasoned counsel and mastery of the planning tools and strategies you need.

At Wealth Planning Law Group, we have always focused on estate planning, elder law, and closely related areas. We always will. Our estate planning attorneys:

  • Are Board Certified Specialists in Estate Planning and Administration
  • Have earned the LL.M. in Taxation, which can prove invaluable in working with clients of high net worth
  • Have earned an AV rating of Preeminent, which is the highest possible rating of Martindale Hubbell
  • Have been recognized as among the top 100 estate planning attorneys in the country by Worth Magazine

In short, we have helped thousands of families address their concerns for the future and achieve their short and long-term goals. We can do the same for you.

Or better still, contact us today for an initial consultation.


Our Commitment To You

Surveys have shown that the biggest complaint people have about law firms is their lack of responsiveness. Many firms project an attitude that can be summed up by the phrase “It’s all about us.” At Wealth Planning Law Group, it’s all about you, our valued clients. We are committed to providing the best possible client service, and vow to:


  • Deliver the greatest value you will find anywhere. We call it Price =Value X 10. That is, we provide ten times the legal services value for your money. Part of this involves offering you a Fixed Fee whenever possible, as well as operating efficiently to keep costs down
  • Hire only highly professional, dedicated people to serve you—the best attorneys and support staff available
  • Return your calls promptly
  • Treat you with the respect and courtesy you deserve
  • Take the time to explain your options clearly, without all the legal mumbo jumbo
  • Do whatever it takes to earn your trust and serve as your legal counselor for life
