About me

I am really good at one thing - creating an awesome experience for my clients. I do that by taking the time out to think about what each of our clients should experience and then creating the processes and procedures to make sure our clients have that expereince every single time.


 


By title we are estate planning attorneys, but we are so much more than that. Our goal is to help our clients create generatinal wealth and protect their families. You deserve to live the life of your dreams and set your family up for generations to live theirs.


 


We can help you do that.


 


For us, it all starts with the basics. And to prove that point we have a system set up to give you, for FREE, the paperwork you need to protect your kids if you are ever in accident (called guardianship). To begin that process (which only takes about 15 minutes) go to http://richlifelawyer.com/kids.
