Estate Planning

Have you or a loved one moved to Missouri in the last year?

Probate

Has a loved one recently passed?

Is it unclear who should inherit specific assets or property?

Did you pay funeral expenses for a loved one?

Are there unpaid medical expenses or credit cards?

You want a plan to make sure your loved ones are taken care of and your affairs are in order but...

you don’t know what is best for your family,

where to start,

or maybe even the right questions to ask,

and how much it will cost.

Which probably makes you feel confused, overwhelmed and maybe even a little powerless.

I look forward to working with you so that you can stop worrying about leaving your loved ones unprepared for one of the most emotional and stressful times in life.

We were referred to Richard by our life insurance agent. Because we are a second marriage and own a business with our kids, we weren’t sure of the best way to plan for our kids and property. Richard explained our options and helped us come up with a plan that makes sure we, the kids and the business are taken care of.

There were some pretty significant changes to my family situation, and I wasn’t sure whether my estate plan took care of these new circumstances. Richard developed a new plan that makes sure my family is taken care of. I am confident that things will be handled correctly when I am gone.
