Utilizing Common Sense In Approaching Your Estate Planning Needs

Common sense tells you that you do not plan your estate or solve trust and estate problems just by throwing money at them. That same common sense should tell you that you do not plan your estate or solve your trust and estate problems by throwing money at your attorneys. The best solutions and the best attorneys are not necessarily the most expensive.

At Barulich Dugoni Law Group, Inc., we are experienced attorneys with a proven track record in successfully handling complex, high-stakes wealth transfers, administrations and related controversies.

Problem Solving Using Cost-Effective Solutions

Experience has taught us that the best solutions are the most cost-effective. As a client, you cannot afford to focus on just half of the cost equation and ignore the other: the cost of an ineffective estate plan, or worse yet, litigation. And you cannot afford attorneys who do the same.

Cost-effective problem solving begins on Day One. It involves helping the client face the sometimes challenging realities of family dynamics, probate and taxes by defining the client's critical interests and crafting a strategy to protect those interests. Doing this focuses the process and helps eliminate unnecessary activity that all too often just seems to create more work for the attorney, and thus higher costs for the client.

Prioritizing Planning For The Future

Our experience has shown that it is better to face those issues on Day One, when you have the opportunity to shape the process with realities firmly in mind, rather than post-death, or when a disgruntled beneficiary files a trust contest, after employing an army of attorneys and paralegals to get you there. If your attorney is not helping you do that, then you have the wrong attorney.

Considering Alternative Solutions

Common sense: a powerful tool when applied to finding legal solutions. Think about your alternatives the next time you have an estate or trust problem, and, think of us as your alternative solution. Bigger and more expensive is not necessarily better. We have built our practice on the belief that clients remember, and keep coming back to, those attorneys who listen and remember the clients' "bottom line."
