* The process of getting a Will done at my firm includes estate planning, takes approximately a month and a half, includes several face-to-face meetings, gives you a chance to organize things on your end (with my help), gives you a chance to ask many questions, and ends with the signing of all required documents. See Will Making Process - Explained for further details.

I promise not to surprise you with any fees. I tell clients ahead of time what fees I intend to charge.
