OUR MISSION

To help everyone create a personalized estate plan at an affordable price with ease

OUR VISION

We believe that everyone – single, married, divorced, widowed, with or without children – should have an estate plan, which allows people to provide for loved ones upon passing.

 

Contrary to popular misconception, creating an estate plan does not require you to have big house, a lot of money, or large assets.  Your estate plan consists of everything you own when you pass, including your home, investments, bank accounts, retirement plans, vehicles, personal property, and any interests in a business or partnership.

If you die without a will or living trust, state law dictates how most of your belongings are to be distributed, and the result may not be what you would want.  The division could lead to your loved ones not being cared for adequately, disputes between your family members and relatives, probate, or even court proceedings which may freeze the distribution of your assets to those who may need it the most at the time of your passing.

 

Having an estate plan in place will allow you to choose competent executors or trustees and give them the necessary authority to act on your behalf.  Good estate planning can also minimize the costs of transferring property to your designated beneficiaries, leaving them more money. 

 

If you own a business, you can also provide for an orderly succession and continuation of business operations.

Trusts

The 2 commons trusts are a Revocable Living Trust and a Real Estate Trust.

A Revocable Living Trust allows you to name a trustee to manage your assets during your lifetime and upon your passing.  You can manage the assets by placing them in a trust and keep them available to you during your life.  You can revoke it at any time.  A married couple will have a joint Revocable Living Trust.  Not everyone needs a Revocable Living Trust.  Call us today at (206) 259-1259 to see if a Revocable Living Trust is right for you.

A Revocable Living Trust is complex and is designed to lower taxes, fees, and costs as well as avoid probate.  Our rates for a Revocable Living Trust depends on the complexity and need.

A Real Estate Trust is specific to any real estate or home that you own.  Instead of or in addition to a Revocable Living Trust, you can provide specific instructions and directives regarding your home. 

A Real Estate Trust names you, the owners, as both the Grantor and Trustee and you have all rights to the home.  Our rates depend on the complexity and the county where the home is located. 

 
"Working with Ada was phenomenal. She is very intelligent and a great listener. I never had any doubts and was confident knowing she was there to assist me and was on my side. She is professional and a force to be reckoned with. My wife made several attempts to consult with other lawyers over the phone before attaining one for hire. She stated that when she spoke to Ada on the phone, Ada was asking key questions about our situation, was upfront, and tactical. This in turn lead to a great experience. Ada, my family and I thank you for all you did! We appreciate [the] effort you put into what you accomplished. Thanks."    - Client
