Nothing matters more to you than your family. Taking steps now to protect your wealth and your business interests is the best way to protect your family during your life and after you are gone. It’s not easy to think about what will happen should you become incapacitated or die unexpectedly, but confronting this critical task now will give you invaluable peace of mind. Our practice is devoted to assisting business owners and families. We use our education, experience, talents, and abilities to best serve others in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
We Are Not Like Other St. Louis Law Firms
If you’ve ever worked with a metropolitan mega-firm, you’ll know immediately that we are different, but different in a good way! Because we have two attorneys, we are able to provide a unique level of service that can’t be matched by larger firms where a client’s matter is often handed off to a junior associate yet billed by more than one attorney. Each of our clients is assigned a lead attorney, paralegal, and client service specialist and works exclusively with this small team. Our goal is to make every client feel like he or she is our only client.
Other unique services we provide include the following:
- Cost-effective representation. Because we offer similar expertise as bigger firms, but with less overhead and fewer attorneys touching your case, we can offer the same services for far less cost to you.
- Professional referrals. We have connections to skilled professionals in a variety of related fields and will refer clients to them if we see gaps in protection. For example, if we feel a client is lacking adequate insurance, we will help them get that coverage from a trusted source.
- Compassionate advice. We understand that planning for your death—or for retirement from your own business—can be an emotional task. The decisions you must make are difficult and complex, and we often find ourselves acting as a family counselor as we help you tackle these challenges. As a family-owned business, we can identify with the challenges you face because we face them as well.
- Elder care planning. Many of our clients are also dealing with aging parents as they write or revise an estate plan or strategize to grow a small business. We offer representation in end-of-life decisions, long-term care, asset protection, and all areas of elder law.
Building a Lasting Relationship
Estate plans are not stagnant documents—or shouldn’t be. As you encounter life changes, your plan may need to be revised. Likewise, the legal needs of your business are ongoing. It is our goal as your law firm to develop a long-term relationship. We make it our business to understand your circumstances, needs, goals, and anxieties and to meet continually over the long haul.
