Importance of Planning Ahead
For Your Business
Business ownership can sometimes be complicated - both from a business and legal perspective. 

The legal issues become even more complicated, however, if a business owner dies or becomes incapacitated without the proper legal documentation in place for the business. 

Without a proper plan in place, your family members will likely have to go to Probate Court to legally claim ownership of the business. This process can be lengthy and openly invites disputes with other family members over who has the rightful claim to the business. In the meantime, your business will suffer since it has no clear owner. 
The issues become even more complex if you run a business with other owners. If one of the other owners passes away before you, there is a good chance that you will either have to come up with a large sum of money to buy-out the deceased owner's interest in the company or you may be stuck in business with a person you don't know or trust! 

Even worse, if your business doesn't have any transfer restrictions on the ownership of the business, nothing can stop the deceased owner's heirs from simply selling their business interest to a complete stranger. 

On the flip side- if you were to pass away before the other business owners, there is no guarantee that your family will be paid their fair share of what the business is worth. How is the payout price to be determined? And where will those funds come from? 
"... if you were to pass away before the other business owners, there is no guarantee that your family will be paid their fair share of what the business is worth. How is the payout price to be determined? And where will those funds come from? "
What happens if you are simply incapacitated? All it takes is a simple car accident to put you out of commission temporarily. When it comes to business, time is usually not our friend and even a short two weeks can have drastic effects on a business. If that happens, who will have the legal authority to act on your behalf for the business? 

These are just a few items that need to be considered when developing a comprehensive Succession Plan for your business. 
Fortunately, we have experience with helping other entrepreneurs navigate this complicated area of law. In fact,  it was after realizing how common it is for entrepreneurs to not have a plan in place, and seeing how relieved they are after working with us, that we decided to create a mini-webinar to educate other entrepreneurs.

To learn more, register now to watch a short 15 minute Mini-Webinar that is designed to help entrepreneurs protect their business and their family in case tragedy strikes. 
Meet Attorney Aaron Fransua
Prior to law school, Aaron experienced the pain and trauma of unexpectedly losing a loved one when he lost his mother suddenly in 2011. 

Overnight, at only 24 years old, Aaron was thrown into the position of caring for his 17-year old sister while making funeral arrangements and dissolving the estate of his mother. 

Unfortunately, his mother was like so many other young adults in our community and did not plan for her unexpected death– leaving no will nor any real inventory of her assets, debts, or insurance policies. 

It was during this time that Aaron began to understand the depth of the pain and the breadth of the difficulties the lack of a comprehensive estate plan can have on a grieving family. 

He is determined to help others in his community so their families will not face the compounded challenges his had to endure.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the process to setup an Estate Plan?
We pride ourselves on making the process as easy as possible for each family and use a 3-step process:

Step 1: Initial Consultation
Once you schedule a consultation with us we send you in intake packet that asks about your family, your wishes, and your assets. We then take that information and prepare for your meeting. The consultation itself is a 2-hour meeting. At the end of the meeting you will know what currently will happen if you were to die today. From there, we develop a plan to give life to your actual wishes. 

Step 2: Signing Ceremony
If you decide to engage our services, we will schedule a meeting for 4-weeks later. I will begin creating all the documents your estate plan needs and will come to your house with two witnesses. The signing meeting takes about an hour to complete, sometimes less. At this stage your estate plan is legally enforceable. 

If you chose a Trust Based plan, you will have a little homework to complete but I will give you everything you need to properly fund your trust.

Step 3- Binder Delivery
After the signing ceremony, I take the documents back to my office and digitize all your documents. I will then deliver your signed estate plan back to you within the week. 
What is the cost of an Estate Plan?
The final cost will depend largely on your estate plan wishes and options you choose. 

To help make the billing process easy, we have created three plans to choose from

All the plans are flat-fee, so you will not be charged hourly or worry about any surprise fees. 

Also, all plans are comprehensive and include a Will, Financial Power of Attorney, Medical Power of Attorney, Living Will, HIPAA Release, Short-Term and Long-Term Guardian Nominations, Fiduciary Letters, Successor Trustee Guide, diagram of your estate plan, and a listing of your assets so it is easy for your family to find what you own. 

These packages provide everything you need so you can rest easily knowing your family is taken care of.

Prices can range anywhere from $800 for a very simple Will-based plan all the way up to $4,500 if you want a complex Trust that has asset protection for your Spouse/Partner and for any children. 

Most people fall within the $2,500-$3,500 range.
