Preserve Family Wealth, Prevent Family Conflict®

Maine Estate Planning Law Firm

What Our Clients Are Saying:

“I want to thank you for everything that you and Hollie did to facilitate the Letters of Guardianship.  When I first called your office, I was beside myself with the task ahead – how to protect my mom in an almost impossible situation.  You both went to work immediately on our behalf and stayed with us through the long process of ensuring her safety.

I am so grateful to Hollie for going the extra mile to facilitate this whole process.  Her professionalism and perseverance made me feel so confident during all the ups and downs of this case.

My mom is as happy as I have seen her in a long time at Knox.  I think it was a relief for her to let go of all her perceived responsibilities.  In fact, we were already managing everything – her finances, staffing, health – but I think she felt a weight about her living situation.  She seems so much lighter now and is not experiencing all the physical ailments that were so frightening to her at home. “

Maine Estate Planning That’s Right For You.

We use wills, trusts and other estate planning tools to create estate plans that save taxes, protect your estate from nursing home costs, possible divorce, bankruptcy, and remarriage, for you, your spouse, your children and grandchildren.

LifeCounsel® … Plans that Work!

LifeCounsel® is built on my 25 years of legal experience. What is LifeCounsel?

LifeCounsel® is a four-part system to ensure that your estate plan meets your unique goals and prioritizes your unique concerns.

Step 1 is knowledge.

Step 2 is Goals and Concerns.

Step 3 is Design.

Step 4 is Follow-Through and free Periodic-Review.

Most estate plans fail for 3 reasons: they are not customized, they do not contain the wisdom of the planner, and, lastly, they are not maintained.
LifeCounsel® fixes all of that.
