Estate Planning Attorney

A well-crafted estate plan is about more than just protecting your assets and avoiding taxes. It should reflect your desires, protect your family, and address your unique situation.

Let us help you protect the two most important things in your life:

  1. Everyone you love
  2. Everything you own

You can share your hopes, dreams, values, goals, and concerns with us.  We listen and help you understand your options.  Our personalized plans will reflect your unique circumstances, promote family harmony, protect their loved ones, and provide a lasting legacy for generations.

Planning is substantially less expensive than the emotional and financial cost if you die or become incapacitated and your estate plan does not meet your needs; or worse, what happens if you don’t have an estate plan at all.

It was a pleasure to work with Swendson Hentz Law Ltd. They took the time we needed to understand our situation and options. They really understood that we wanted more than tax planning. We wanted to make sure that our plan worked for our family’s needs.

Contact Us for a Consultation

Prior to our consultation, we will ask you to complete and send us your Estate Planning Questionnaire. This allows us to be prepared for our first meeting.  We will explain what happens to your loved ones and property without further planning.  You will be able to determine if there is anything you don’t like and want to change.
