Our Process

How to Get Started

Our process starts with a call to our office where our team will collect some very general information about the nature of your matter so that we can make an initial assessment about whether the proposed matter is within the areas of legal assistance that we provide.

We offer an initial 30-minute Peace-of-Mind Consultation that is billed at our hourly rate. If you decide to proceed with the planning or representation, the consultation fee is credited to the flat fee if you qualify for a flat fee. Heather prefers to initially meet with prospective clients in person at our office. However, if distance precludes an in-person meeting, a video conference may be possible.

We also offer an initial 15-minute telephone call, to get to know you and answer any preliminary questions. Please note that we are not able to provide specific legal advice during this time.

How Our Fees Work

We offer flat fees for estate planning, long-term care planning and special needs planning clients who qualify. Otherwise, we charge hourly.

I was absolutely without a clue as to how to begin or what I should do to establish an estate plan. I did know that I wanted someone I could trust, that was honest and I would have confidence in. I was referred to Heather by my friend who was being legally advised by Heather on another estate. She was very satisfied with her work and thought I might be happy with her service. At our consultation appointment, her presentation was very thorough. I had lots of questions, and she was easy to talk to and was able to guide me to just the kind of estate plan I needed. That was 10 years ago. Due to circumstances in my life, I have had to make changes to my plan, and I always go back to her for her legal services and guidance. I have recommended Heather before.
