If you’re ready to get going, please attend one of our upcoming events (which you can read about below) or schedule a 15-minute free consultation. If you’re ready to jump right in, please schedule a Family Wealth Planning Session. Undecided? That’s fine, it’s normal to be a little uneasy about estate planning. Many of our happiest clients started just where you are right now. But, when they read the best-selling book on estate planning for families, Wear Clean Underwear (we know, it’s a funny name, right?) they felt more at ease, educated and informed. We would love to send you a copy of this book for free, as my gift to you for considering working with me.
Simply click and enter your name and email address and I’ll send you Wear Clean Underwear: A Fast, Fun, Friendly – and Essential – Guide to Planning for Busy Families.
It’s called Wear Clean Underwear because your mom always told you to wear clean underwear in case you were in an accident, but once you are a parent, there are important legal planning steps you need to take as well. By the way, the book gets 4.4 stars on Amazon
Service beyond compare. From the moment I spoke with Donna the entire will and trust process was smooth, understandable and extremely valuable. As a father, husband and business owner, understanding how to protect my family and my assets has always been top of mind. Donna and her team did an amazing job! I highly recommend Donna and the Truest Law team.

YOUR FAMILY'S LAWYER FOR LIFE
Our Family Wealth VIP Membership programs are part of what set us apart and allow us to care for you and your family throughout all life’s stages.
At most estate planning law firms the relationship ends when you sign your documents. At Truest Law we see the signing of your estate planning documents as just the beginning of our relationship with your family. And that’s how it should be because your life will change, your assets will change, and the law will change. Your plan needs to change along the way, as well.
Within the past year, a combination of new legislation and the recent change of leadership in the White House and Congress stands to dramatically increase the income taxes your loved ones will have to pay on inherited retirement accounts as well as increasing the income taxes you owe on your taxable investments. However, purchasing life insurance may offer you the opportunity to minimize the effect of these developments. To this end, if you hold assets in a retirement account, you need to review your financial plan and estate plan as soon as possible to determine if investing in life insurance
If you own a business, you almost certainly have intellectual property. However, because your intellectual property is intangible, it can be invisible to you and those who aren’t familiar with the nature of intellectual property and its value, so it often gets overlooked, especially when it comes to estate planning. Yet, if you fail to properly document your intellectual property, your estate plan will likely not protect it—and this could cause your loved ones to miss out on what can be among your most valuable assets. When we talk about intellectual property, we’re referring to creations of the mind, including
Although you likely won’t need to have an entirely new estate plan prepared for you, upon relocating to another state, you should definitely have your existing plan reviewed by an estate planning lawyer who is familiar with your new home state’s laws. Each state has its own laws governing estate planning, and those laws can differ significantly from one location to another. Given this, you’ll want to make sure your planning documents all comply with the new state’s laws, and the terms of those documents still work as intended. Here, we’ll discuss how differing state laws can affect common planning
While the quarantines, shutdowns, and social distancing measures related to the pandemic have been difficult for everyone, the elderly have been particularly hard hit. Since seniors face the most health risks from COVID-19, most of them have been careful to avoid close contact with their family members, and this has left many grandparents unable to visit with their grandchildren for close to a year now. This loss of in-person connection for such an extended period of time can cause people to feel isolated and lonely, which can eventually lead to mental health issues like depression. At the same time, children
With people living longer than ever before, more and more seniors require long-term healthcare services in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. However, such care is extremely expensive, especially when it’s needed for extended periods of time. Traditional healthcare insurance doesn’t cover such services, and though Medicare does pay for some long-term care, it’s quite limited, difficult to qualify for, and requires you to deplete nearly all of our assets before being eligible (or do proactive planning to shield your assets, which we can support you with). To address this gap in coverage, long-term care insurance was created. Intensive Care
Last week in part one of this series (Part One) we discussed how Tony Hsieh became an Internet pioneer, starting two wildly successful companies, LinkExchange and Zappos, the latter of which he sold to Amazon for $1.2 billion. It was as CEO of the online shoe brand Zappos where Hsieh developed his vision for life and business: delivering happiness. A Double Life Hsieh outlined this mission in the 2010 book, Delivering Happiness: A Path To Profits, Passion and Purpose, which became a New York Times number-one bestseller. Yet while the young entrepreneur was busy bringing joy to his customers, employees,
