About me

This is about YOU!   What do you need to solve your problem and to feel safe and secure?  We can help you do that by addressing your needs.  Don't sit back and do nothing.  If you don't have a will, trust, powers of attorney, health care instructions, then to protect yourself and to be safe, you need to do something about that.


If you are a beneficiary of a trust and the trustee won't tell you what assets are in the trust, won't give you your monies from the trust, then you need to do something about that.  There are a lot of trustees out there who don't realize that the trust's monies belong to the beneficiaries and not to the trustees.  You, as a beneficiary, are entitled to know what goes on in your trust.  You are entitled to full accountings, with copies of bank statements, cancelled checks, and receipts for any monies paid out by the trustee.   Only you can stop your trustee from misbehaving!


Call us and we can see if we can help you, either on an hourly basis or on a contingency basis.
