Generally we begin the Estate Planning process by gathering information from you so that we may examine your asset base and individual situation. This is done by filling out our Client Intake and Estate Planning Questionnaire. Once you have completed and submitted these forms, we will schedule a free consultation at our office to make sure we understand your needs. The information you provide to us in the Questionnaire will be subject to attorney-client privilege, and held strictly confidential. After meeting with you and discussing the document, we usually have the necessary information to move forward with your estate plan. Once we have agreed on a plan, Pippenger Hedberg Law will draft and revise the necessary documents to your satisfaction. In some cases, a very basic will and medical documents are sufficient. In other cases, the planning will be more in depth and complex. Regardless of your particular circumstances, Pippenger Hedberg Law will assist you with your Estate Planning and help you achieve peace of mind about this sometimes stressful topic.
