Prospective clients have felt "comfortable" and "confident" as soon as they talk to Tom Greene or one of our associates.

"It totally blows my mind how easy it was to put this task behind me." Roberta D., age 46

Tom: "I’m almost afraid to ask, but here goes: How’s your estate plan?"

On a scale of 1 – 10:

  • 8 - 10Excellent. My partner and I have a will, revocable trust, durable power of attorney and an end of life health care directive.
  • 5 – 7Pretty good. I am in good shape, but my partner is not.
  • 3 – 4Not so hot. I think I have a 10-year-old will, but no idea what the other documents even cover. Plus, the lawyer I talked to wanted a fortune.
  • 0 – 2 … Let’s put it this way: My partner and I have split. If something happens to me. I have no idea what will happen to my kids or my money. I am terrified!

If you answered 8+, you’re free to go. Shoot, you may want to be a lawyer.

If you rated in the 5 – 7 range, I advise you to stick around. What you’re about to learn could provide the comfort you crave – and save you money.

Which leaves those in the 3 – 4 and, gasp, 0 – 2 groups.

Yes, you’re behind, but are you really asking for much? No. You just want a smidgen of comfort and an ounce of confidence that you have done what every good parent or partner should do to provide for their family.

Well, I’ve got good news: You’ve come to the right place.

In fact, you’re gonna leave our relationship with a lot more than your modest wishes. For starters, you’ll lock in which assets your spouse or partner will get and which assets your children and grandchildren will get. And, you’ll make sure that your children will be with guardians you choose, rather than the state. You’ll be free from worry about who has authority to handle your affairs if you are in an accident. Instead of fretting all the things that might go wrong, you’ll size up your situation and say: "I have taken charge and I am good to go!"

That’s a far cry from where you are now, right?

If it makes you feel any better, you’ve got lots of company. Plenty of smart people struggle to take the time to finish up this seemingly simple part of their life. Frankly, everyone realizes it’s part of being a responsible adult – they just keep putting it off.

Hi – I’m Tom Greene, I have practiced law for decades and am a Top 10% American Lawyer of Distinction. I am published regularly in the most prestigious national estate planning publications. As an attorney and trusted advisor, I have represented clients in almost every conceivable type of estate and financial situation. Estate planning is what we do! Inexperienced lawyers, non-specialist lawyers AND online services can make estate planning harder than it should be.

I’ve met many clients who believe their affairs are in good order, but upon examination, their score is in the mid-range, leaving important family needs unmet.

OK, I’ve suggested your planning may be less than stellar. You can tell for sure by asking yourself a few questions.

  • Do I need a co-executor?
  • How do I avoid the costs and time of probate?
  • Should I have a living trust? How does it work?
  • What are the tax consequences of my bequests to loved ones?
  • Should a family member be the trustee?
  • Should my home be transferred into the living trust, and, if so, how?
  • What do I do if I want to exclude someone from my will?
  • Do I need a financial power of attorney…what about an end of life health care directive?
  • How do I prevent underaged children from receiving a life insurance inheritance windfall?

Trust me, I’ve seen it all.

NO GUESSWORK. Most people want an experienced attorney to handle their estate planning, but they fear unknown costs. With LIBERTY STREE ESTATE PLANNING, you know up-front what you are getting and what the cost will be.

COMPARE US TO OTHERS. We are less than most estate attorneys and, yes, a little more than online document service. But that is before the extras they don’t provide, like:

  • Free consultation
  • Free second opinions
  • Free financial review
  • Free asset protection review
  • Free extra lawyer time applied to later changes

WHAT ARE YOUR OTHER CHOICES?

For lawyers in the estate planning field, the real competition is not other attorneys. It is the "one-size-fits-all" software and online services.

If you are considering one of these services, first ask yourself a few questions:

  1. Their documents may be legal, but do they fit me?
  2. When you are on hold and the recording keeps repeating "we are not a law firm," what are they really telling you?
  3. Is the risk of a big mistake worth a little less cost?

Here’s what I can tell you.

At Liberty Street, we start with a carefully selected document that fits your personal situation and we fill-in your basic information. That is where "one-size-fits all" services stop. But we have just begun. From there, we take the time to gather the additional information needed to draft the documents for your personal situation. For example: do you have a child with special needs? What about family pets? Is there a vengeful ex-spouse?... and so on, and so on.

Don’t take a chance. Get an inexpensive Estate Plan from a REAL lawyer - not a machine.

But, we don’t stop there…

As part of our basic plan, we provide:

Free of charge

  • an Advance Health Care Directive for end of life care meeting the requirements of your State of residence.

    AND

  • An analysis of your financial condition and needs…with a second opinion, if needed.

    AND

  • An Asset Protection Review to identify potential exposures that could threaten you and your family’s future finances and comfort.

But the most important thing is…

A Liberty Street Estate Plan will Greatly help you sleep at night.

Maria L. can confirm. Carol T. can, too.
