Seamless, painless Wills and Trusts right in the RF Valley!
We built (and I mean built) our will and trust as engineered by Kristine in late 2020/2021. We worked with Kristine remotely due to the Pandemic. The remote process was simple and seamless. What I liked best about Kristine was her patience, knowledge and professionalism. She didn't mind my naïve questions or my "what if" questions, and patiently explained our options and the pros and cons of each. Nor did she seem to mind repeating answers, or dealing with "last minute" changes. (Please keep those to a minimum) Kristine would always remind us that this was OUR document and we could form it as we wanted. BUT she'd always explain the potential ramifications of our "not so smart" decisions and language recommendations. If you want a comfortable, friendly, and top notch attorney to address this "less than fun" obligation. ....I recently lost my mother and I clearly understand that IT IS AN OBLIGATION TO YOUR LOVED ONES! Kristine will make building your will and/or trust go smoothly and accurately. She will help you express your wishes in a way that best accommodates you and your beneficiaries for both the short and long term. And when it's all done, you and your loved ones have easy access to all of your signed and notarized documents in an indexed binder. Nobody will need to figure out how to access your PC, to get this information in times of chaos. Anyone that knows me, knows I'm all about electronic records. But I can appreciate the value of original hard copies when it comes to my will and trust.

Biography

The time to plan for the unexpected and difficult is now. Whether you are married or single, a single parent, parents with minor children, an unmarried committed couple, a grandparent raising a grandchild, or a retired couple, whatever your circumstances, it is best to be prepared for what life may bring. A comprehensive will or trust plan is a fabulous tool to defend yourself and your family against the unexpected and to anticipate “the next steps” in the event of mental incapacity or death.

Not having the right documents in place in the event of mental incapacity, or having a will or trust plan that doesn’t fit your circumstances, may result in aggravated family conflict, financial confusion, avoidable court involvement, and unnecessary delays. Choose a plan that reflects your vision of what you want for you and your family, protects your assets, and preserves family relationships.

Planning for the future starts in the present. People are often overwhelmed by the idea of creating an estate plan; let me help you. This process is designed to identify your assets, clarify your wishes, educate you on your choices, and ultimately provide you with tools and documents to meet your needs for both life and death events.

Creating a clear estate plan is gift to yourself and your family.
