What is "Modern Estate Planning"?

At its core, estate planning is about managing family relationships effectively.

 

The more a lawyer understands the details of your family's dynamic, the better your estate plan will become.

Therefore, it is crucial that clients find an attorney with whom they feel comfortable sharing their goals and concerns, and form a lasting relationship.​ 

In the context of estate planning, one major obstacle to forming such a relationship between attorney and client, quite frankly, is the way that most law firms do business.
