Guiding You Through The Estate Planning Journey

At LifePath Law, we believe estate planning is a long-term endeavor. Even once you set up an estate plan, it could grow outdated very quickly and by the time you need it, the plan may no longer be effective at meeting your goals.

That is why when you consult with LifePath Law, you work closely with a seasoned estate and probate lawyer to design an estate plan unique to your needs. Our goal is not to just prepare your estate plan, but to ensure that you have the resources to meaningfully participate in your estate plan and that it is relevant to where you are in life.

One of the highlights of our practice is our formal funding, maintenance and update program. You don't want to worry about whether your estate plan will be updated every time your life changes or a new law comes into effect. That is why we offer maintenance services to ensure your plan is relevant and up-to-date, so it can work the way you want when you need it to. We take care of all the details so you can have peace of mind.
