Margaret Barrett: You know that you need an estate plan, or maybe you need to update the plan you have. We know there are other options out there. Today, I want to tell you what makes Safe Harbor Estate Law unique among all the options. We call them the four CS.

The first C is, we truly care and it shows. You are not just a number to us. We listen and we ask questions. We strive to improve our clients’ lives every day.

The second C is communicate. Communication is a huge priority at our firm. We strive to go above and beyond other firms in communicating with you. We keep in touch. We anticipate and answer questions. We want you to be comfortable throughout the entire process.

The third C is customized. We prepare customized plans for each client. These are not cookie-cutter plans, and they are very thorough. Because we’re elder lawyers, if you’re 50 or over, we’re going to offer to include plans that protect your assets and you if you ever need to pay for long-term care.

The fourth C is complete. We help you complete your estate plan. We don’t just forget about you as soon as you sign your documents. We give you clear, written instructions on important follow-up steps, so you and your loved ones can have smooth sailing. We’ll work with your financial advisor if you like, as well. And then, we’ll follow up with you and answer questions as you complete the process. Then, once a year, we’ll call you and check-in, just to see how you’re doing.

The fourth C is, we help you complete the estate planning process.

How do we know that we are unique for the 5 Cs, Caring, Communicating, Customizing, and Completeness? Because over the years, our clients have consistently told us that we excel in these four areas. I encourage you to give us a call and find out for yourselves.
